    This guy looks pretty good for the 2018 draft. Four goals in 11 games played in the NLA. Can he be the next top prospect coming out of Switzerland after Meier and Hischier and even follow their path by going to Halifax? He will also play at the WJC U20 as a 17 years old.

    Whoever drafts him...a restaurant in their city should definitely serve a Nando Eggenberger .

    He has a big frame at 6'2/185, but he will also be one of the oldest players in the draft.

    Talented player with a sick release, tho.

    If this kid makes the pros, he has some serious food-related sponsorship coming his way.

    Try the new "Nando" Egg'n'burger, only at Denny's.

    Really like this guy. Lots of good prospects coming from Switzerland in recent years.

    From just watching the highlights he looks impressive. Nice combination of speed, size and shot. Looking forward to seeing him in the WJC.

    Drafted this guy in FHM3 the other day so I had to search him up and saw he was actually doing not bad. I have to wonder if this kid will be coming over to NA, could be a hot commodity for the import draft if he wants to especially with the success of Hischier.

    This is a player you take in the first round solely because of his name.

    As a swiss guy, I was having trouble seeing the funny part about this name :D only realised it after you explained it here..
    Names like these are quite popular here, nontheless I'm glad you guys like it.
    He plays for my home town team so I watched him a few times and really liked what I saw.
    Plays some big frame hockey and knows how to use his body properly. Very good shot and hard to remove from the puck. Skating is quite good but not a quick starter. Have to watch more of his to rate his vision or defensive work, was used very limitated so far. Which is quite logical for a teenager in a men's league. I know they play completely different games and roles, but '17 top prospect Nico Hischier couldn't make a similar impact last year in the same league.

    Anyone have any recent news on this kid? He looks to be a decent prospect. Where would he rank as of now?

    He's keeping a steady pace. As of right now he's just on the first round bubble, a high 2nd on my list as of now. Great release on his shot, pretty fast, but he is one of the older draftees so those stick out a bit more now, who knows how the others will catch up later.

    Thanks. Watching some clips of him he seems to be well rounded and has some size as well. He will be an interesting prospect to track this season given his tools and size.

    Would love if NJ took him to play with Nico, but I'm almost certain our first 2 picks next year will be defensemen
