VIDEO: Zverev and Auger-Aliassime practice with NHL 2020 MVP Leon Draisaitl

The 2020 bett1HULKS Indoors Cologne finalists, Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime met the NHL 2020 MVP Leon Draisaitl.

The 24-years-old German ice-hockey player was born in Cologne and naturally during the off-season he was probably spending some time at home. He joined the 2020 bett1HULKS Indoors Cologne finalists, Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime on the court as the three shot on the goal and enjoyed a little chat.

“It was good fun to meet Leon, the MVP this year in the league. [It is cool that he is] playing for a Canadian team, also,” Auger-Aliassime said. “I love to meet athletes from other sports, especially hockey. Myself, I play a little bit for fun in the winter over there [in Canada]. It’s cool to experience it, see them from up close, see how they do and it was impressive to see him take a couple shots at the net.”

“It’s always great to meet other athletes, especially somebody who has won the MVP in such a big sport as ice hockey and the NHL,” Zverev said. “It was great fun, but I’ll definitely stick to tennis.”

“They’re so good, they’re the best in the world. It’s not really my level here, but all in all it was a lot of fun,” Draisaitl said. “It’s fun to do it this way. Obviously as an athlete you always love watching other sports and it’s great to see those two. They’re obviously very successful. It was fun to meet them and [I] had a good day.”
