Vitalij Aab (born November 14, 1979, in Karagandy, Soviet Union) is a German ice hockey player who currently plays for the Sinupret Ice Tigers in the DEL.[1]

Career[edit | edit source]

Vitalij Aab's professional debut was at the age of 17 for EC Wilhelmshaven. In his second season, he scored 28 points. In 1999, he was promoted into the second division with Wilhelmshaven. Two years later, he transferred to the Nuremberg Ice Tigers, where he played for three years. During this time he played so well that the German national coach called him up to play for the German national ice hockey team. Aab had the worst season of his career in 2004/2005 with the Adler Mannheim; he only scored 24 points in 48 games, and therefore received very little ice time at the end of the season[2]. He left Mannheim after only one season and switched to the Iserlohn Roosters. After struggling at first, Aab's performance improved dramatically. At the end of the season, he was the highest scorer in Germany. Before the 2006/2007 season, the Hamburg Freezers signed him[3].
