Swiss-born Nico Hischier makes history, goes No. 1 to Devils

Parmenio Sano | 26 Giugno, 2017, 02:24

He still managed to collect 46 points last season, including 20 goals, in 33 games with Brandon in the Western Hockey League. It was then that he scored 41 goals and 102 points in 72 games, and suddenly grew into an NHL-sized body while winning the playoff MVP award in the WHL. He'll certainly provide a jump-start to the Devils offence, which sputtered to 28th overall last season.

Hischier fits in nicely with Shero's desire to put a faster team on the ice. In a draft known for good players, but not particularly outstanding talent (below the top two), it was a very good risk for the teams to take-in this kind of environment, it was okay to swing for the fences and pray you get a victor.

In the days, weeks, even months leading up to the 2017 draft, the jockeying to be selected in the top spot was between two centres: Hischier, the flashy offensive threat of the Halifax Mooseheads, and Nolan Patrick, the injury-prone star of the Brandon Wheat Kings.

The Flyers seemed more than happy to get Patrick, whose season was hampered by a sports hernia, second overall.

"I didn't really see that as a hockey place when I went there, but now, with the new team and the fans and season tickets sold out, I think hockey will be unbelievable", Glass said.

"I think it's going to help him in the long run with the adversity he's had to deal with". "We won the Cup two years ago and teams played us even hard than they usually do". They could pair him with Travis Konecny to his left and Jake Voracek trying to dish to him from the right side. I wasn't sitting there rattled. Patrick was in a two-man race with Nico Hischier to go No. 1 overall to New Jersey.

His father, Steve, played for the Buffalo Sabres, New York Rangers and Quebec Nordiques, and his uncles James Patrick and Rich Chernomaz played in the National Hockey League, too. Patrick returned on January 13, and played most nights until he suffered a knee injury on March 17 that cost him the playoffs.

The Dallas Stars, Colorado Avalanche and Vancouver Canucks round out the top five selections. Colaiacovo played in the German league previous year. Did they use them on the right players?


Stephen Patrick says a lot has changed since he played in the National Hockey League in the '80s. The Blackhawks also received goaltender Anton Forsberg and a 2018 fifth-round draft pick in exchange for forward Tyler Motte and Chicago's sixth-round selection.

Hischier racked up 86 points (38 goals, 48 assists) in 57 games last season with Halifax.

Glass said he avoided making eye contact with his dad after his name was called because he did not want to cry.

"It's a great moment (for him) when you look back over the whole year, " he said.

So still no Manitoban has ever been picked first overall. "I'll just move on from there and get ready for next season". There were more in the immediate aftermath with the Oilers finally parting with Jordan Eberle and the Blackhawks flipping 2016 Calder Trophy victor Artemi Panarin to Columbus for Brandon Saad.

With their second pick in the draft, the Devils selected talented Swedish winger Jesper Boqvist.

Jordan Eberle was dealt from Edmonton a day earlier. Nine of the last 17 No. 2 picks in the draft have done just that.

There were a number of trades made during the draft and a record six Finnish players taken in the first round.
