From a Swiss point of view, the NHL has nothing to celebrate on Monday evening. Nico Hischier hurt, Timo Meier and Nino Niederreiter help each one.
Nico Hischer spent a little more than six minutes in Ice Winnipeg in a 2-5 loss to his New Jersey Devils. In the second period Valais left the field with a chest injury and first sat on the bench before he disappeared into the dressing room and did not appear. The type of his injury is still unknown.
In the second NHL ice hall, two Swiss players were able to record a helping hand. Nino Niederreiter gave a decisive exit to reach 1-1 in 22 minutes at the Minnesota Wild 3-2 victory in St Louis. Timo Meier helped the final 3: 1 in his San Jose Sharks to Calgary. The 22-year-old has reached 12 goals and 5 assists in 18 games.
