The Oilers selected Eberle in the first round (22nd overall) of the 2008 National Hockey League Draft. Eberle was selected to play in the NHL All-Star Game in 2010-11 and 2011-12.
On the international stage, Eberle has represented Canada at six World Championships and won gold in 2015. He also skated with Team Canada at two World Junior Championships, winning gold in 2009 along-side Islanders defenseman Thomas Hickey. Eberle scored one of the biggest goals in the tournament's history, tying the semi-final game against Russia with five seconds remaining. Eberle would eventually score in the shootout to send Canada to the gold medal game where they defeated Team Sweden. He also played for Team Canada in 2010, earning a silver medal, where he took home tournament MVP honors.
