New Jersey Devils fans and hockey fans everywhere should be excited about this guy and what he can bring to the sport! Nico Hischier is only 19 years old as of the time we’re writing this, and has already busted onto the scene with a fury. Coming from Switzerland, the left-handed shooting centre was the 1st overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, and is the first Swiss to be selected #1.
Nico was named the Canadian League Rookie of the Year before making his NHL Debut. His playing style has been described as balanced. He is equally talented on both sides of the line, making him a tremendous 2-way player. The Devils’ future certainly looks bright with Nico in place to lead the franchise in coming years, learning from some of the best players in hockey along the way, and honing his craft season after season.
