Tobias Rieder (born 10 January 1993) is a German professional ice hockey forward currently playing for the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League (NHL). Rieder was originally selected by the Oilers in the fourth round, 114th overall, of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, although he did not join them until 2018. He has previously played with the Arizona Coyotes and Los Angeles Kings.

Playing career[edit]

Having been drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, on 29 March 2013, Rieder's playing rights were traded to the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for Kale Kessy.[1] At the conclusion of his major junior career in the 2012–13 season with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), on 15 April 2013, Rieder signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Phoenix.[2]

In the 2014–15 season, his second professional campaign in North America, Rieder received his first NHL recall by the Coyotes from the club's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Portland Pirates, on 2 November 2014. That same day, he scored his first NHL goal, the game winner for the Coyotes.[3]

On 1 December 2014, Rieder set an NHL record by a first-year player by scoring two short-handed goals 58 seconds apart during the same penalty kill in a 5–2 win against the Edmonton Oilers.[4]

On February 21, 2018, during the 2017–18 season, Rieder (along with goaltender Scott Wedgewood) were traded to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for goaltender Darcy Kuemper.[5] In the final stretch of the regular season, Rieder appeared in 20 games with the Kings, scoring four goals and six points. He made his Stanley Cup playoff debut in Los Angeles' first-round sweep to the Vegas Golden Knights.

On July 1, 2018, as a free agent, Rieder returned to the Edmonton Oilers organization after signing a one-year, $2 million contract.[6]

International play[edit]

Rieder was named to the Germany men's national ice hockey team and made his senior debut at the 2014 IIHF World Championship.[7]
