Nino Niederreiter's Player ProfileRising rapidly up the draft rankings since his valiant World Junior Championship performance (highlighted by his “you can’t stop me” performance against the Russians), Swiss-born winger Nino Neiderriter has become one of the top prospects in this year’s draft.
Niederreiter boasts good size, and all ready knows how to use it to protect the puck etc.. His balance is impeccable leaving him dominant against the wall. Moreover, like many WHL players, Niederreiter plays with some serious grit and never stops competing or bringing the intensity. This is evidenced by his great play in big games. Finally, and this is what really sets Nino apart from many other prospects is how creative he is with the puck for a big guy. He has good hands, and is a proven goal scorer at every level. All his skills, coupled with his character makeup will make Nino an attractive winger for any NHL GM come draft day.

Nino is a very aggressive, high energy player, that is a step above all of his peers from Switzerland. In the 2009/2010 World Junior Championships, Neiderreiter made a name for himself by scoring timely goals, and for the most part putting on a one man show. He plays a North American style of play, similar to to the likes of Alex Burrows of the Vancouver Canucks. I would expect him to go at pick #10 in the draft, just based on the impact he made against his opposition at the World Junior Championships.
