Where are they now? (Switzerland – part 1)

Apart from the traditional big 5 (Finland, Sweden, Russia, Czech Republic, Slovakia) in Europe, Switzerland has made some siginificant progress the past few years and has established themselves as a genuine A-pool country.

There are currently around 60 players which are either drafted or have had an NHL career playing in Switzerland, most of them being North-Americans. Where exactly are they playing now and what happened to them after they crossed the pond? An overview per NHL team

Red Wings Prospects Update

Red Wings Prospects Update

The best prospect thus far into the season has been Stefan Liv of HV 71 in the Swedish Elite League. He had a great season last year but this year he has been outstanding. He is third in the league with a .917 save percentage and a 2.31 GAA and he also leads the league with 3 shutouts.

But he has not only been great with the Elite team he has also played terrific with the national team in two tournaments, the first in the Czech Republic in the start of the year where he only played one game and allowed only one goal and was the first star of the game. But the second tournament, the Sweden Hockey Games showed to be his best international performance so far, he started as back up but after poor play by Andreas Hadelöv he was allowed to start the second game. At this point, his sensational play led the team to the victory in the whole tournament, and the Swedish commentators were touting him as the best goalie of the tournament, but sadly the award went to a Russian goalie. So far this season in 4 games with the national team he has a 1.5 GAA and .944 save percentage.

It is not only his great performances in the rink that has given him many great compliments here in Sweden, it is also his great sense of humour and self confidence. For every interview you hear and see him, you can’t help but like him more and more, and that is why he is one of the most popular players in the league.

Unfortunately last week he broke his collar bone and the doctors say that he will be out up to six weeks but. In a recent interview, Liv Read more»

Dany Heatley: The Thrashers’ 2nd overall pick in 2000 has finally caught up and at least for the moment surpassed his more celebrated counterpart picked 1st overall in 2001. It’s only a matter of time until his physical game catches up to his offensive one and then he’ll be a real handful. Read more»
