Max Görtz (born January 28, 1993) is a Swedish professional ice hockey forward. He is currently playing with the Malmö Redhawks in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). Görtz was selected by the Nashville Predators in the 6th round (172nd overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Görtz originally played as a youth within the Malmö Redhawks organization at the J20 SuperElit level. He later made his professional debut appearing in the Swedish Hockey League with Färjestad BK and Frölunda HC. On June 2, 2014, he signed a three-year entry level contract with Nashville.[1]

After a successful rookie season in North America scoring 47 points in 72 games with the Predators AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals , Görtz was unable to consolidate his performance in repeating his offensive contribution the following 2016–17 season. After 30 games, having registered just 1 goal and 4 points, Görtz was traded by the Predators to the Anaheim Ducks, in exchange for Andrew O'Brien on January 19, 2017.[2]

Having failed to make his debut at the NHL level throughout the duration of his rookie contract, as an impending restricted free agent, Görtz opted to return to his original club in Sweden, the Malmö Redhawks of the SHL, in signing a two-year contract on May 26, 2017.[3]
