Marcel Noebels was picked 118th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the fourth round of the 2011 NHL Draft and holds the distinction of being the only German forward Philly has ever drafted, as Dennis Seidenberg is the franchise’s only German blue liner ever selected when he went in the sixth round back in 2001.

After he completed his second straight 50-point season in the Western Hockey League of Canadian juniors last year, Noebels joined the Trenton Titans at the start of this year and is currently one of the youngest players on the team.

In his first season as a professional, Noebels is second on Trenton’s squad when it comes to points. The only player ahead of him is Andy Bohmbach, who has two more points and has played in just as many games as Noebels. With that being said, the former Seattle Thunderbird and Portland Winterhawk is second on the club with 10 goals and leads the Titans with 16 helpers. Noebels is also second on the team in shots on net with 71, as Stephen Schultz is the only skater on Trenton’s roster ahead of him with 83.

At the moment, Noebels is currently on a six-game point streak. He has four goals and five assists during the stretch and has a pair of multi-point performances including one that came in the Titans’ most recent game, a 5-2 victory over the Fort Wayne Komets, where he deposited a tally and recorded two assists. Although he doesn’t average a point per game, Noebels has the second-highest point total out of the forwards on the list despite playing in less games than Nick Cousins, the player at the top of the list, and Taylor Leier, who has the same point total but needed one more game to reach his point production.
