Konrad Abeltshauser (born 2 September 1992) is a German professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing with EHC München of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). Abeltshauser was selected by the San Jose Sharks in the 6th round (163rd overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Abeltshauser played four seasons (2009 to 2013) with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), where he registered 28 goals, 122 assists, and 127 penalty minutes, in 219 games played.
On 13 April 2012, the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League signed Abeltshauser to an entry-level contract, but he did not make his professional debut until the 2013–14 season when he played 57 games for San Jose's AHL affiliate, the Worcester Sharks.
On 29 June 2015, Abeltshauser was traded by the Sharks to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for a conditional draft pick. He was assigned by the Blues to begin the 2015–16 season with AHL affiliate, the Chicago Wolves. After providing just 5 assists in 20 games with the Wolves, on 16 January 2016, Abeltshauser was placed on unconditional waivers by the Blues, in order to mutually terminate the remainder of his NHL contract. Upon clearing, he returned to his native Germany, signing a contract with EHC München of the DEL on 20 January 2016. He received DEL Regular Season Defenceman of the Year honors in the 2016-17 campaign.
