Nico Hischier's Player ProfileJeff Marek of Sportsnet - Mar. 8th: "Popped big at the WJC and CHL Top Prospects game, but has tailed off slightly. Was injured and since returning has played a slightly different game. Some scouts worry about some of the fatigue he’s shown, but his skills more than compensate."
ISS Hockey - Mar. 4th: "Dynamic skater. Good speed, but it is his quickness & shiftiness that separates him."
ISS Hockey - Feb. 4th: "He’s the real deal. Tremendous poise w/the puck & was outstanding during CHL Top Prospect game."
Mike Morreale NHL.com - Jan. 20th: "The Switzerland-born left-shot forward (6-1, 176) has elite hockey sense, a nice scoring touch and underrated edge to his game. He excelled as an underage player for Switzerland at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship with four goals and three assists in five games. He has been dominant for Halifax with 64 points (32 goals, 32 assists) in 38 games."
Future Considerations: "A smooth-skating, playmaking center…good skating agility and top speed, but is more quick than fast…is able to make quick turns and displays good lateral movement…not big or strong, but still shows willingness to take hits and battle for space…goes into board battles and uses his body to fight for pucks…excellent playmaking instincts, vision and passing skills…puts puck where his linemates can best utilize the chance…an incredible stickhandler who thrives in possession and can make defenders look foolish"
Dennis Schellenberg Hockey Prospectus - Nov. 9th: "He is an outstanding stickhandler and can distribute pucks with great accuracy and awareness. He likes to have the puck on his stick and is a poised puck carrier, can make plays no one expects and make line mates better in any of his shifts."
