Christoph Schubert (born February 5, 1982) is a German professional ice hockey player. Schubert is currently playing for Hamburg Freezers in Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). Schubert played over 300 games in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Atlanta Thrashers and Ottawa Senators from 2005–2010.
Schubert was drafted 127th overall in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by the Ottawa Senators. He is generally seen as a competent defenceman and a checking forward with some physical upside.
One of his greatest assets is his shot, which was measured at over 100 mph in the 2005–06 Senators' Super Skills Competition, giving him the second-hardest shot in Senators team history behind former teammate Zdeno Chara.
He recorded his first career NHL goal on future teammate Martin Gerber vs. the Carolina Hurricanes on November 22, 2005. In the 2006–07 Super Skills Competition for the Senators, despite losing to Mike Fisher for the hardest shot, he achieved first place in the puck control relay portion.
At the beginning of the 2009–10 season, on October 2, Schubert was claimed off waivers by the Atlanta Thrashers. Schubert remained on the Thrashers roster primarily as a depth player and in 47 games scored 2 goals and 7 points.
In the following 2010–11 season, Schubert was unable to garner another NHL contract and after 8 years returned to Europe, signing with Frölunda HC of the Swedish Elitserien on September 15, 2010. Contributing just 4 assists in 23 games with the Indians, Schubert was mutually released from his contract and returned to his native Germany, signing a two-year deal with the Hamburg Freezers on December 8, 2010.
