Three players to watch for Team Switzerland at the 2021 WJC
Noah Meier, D: Is listed as a ‘B’ prospect on NHL Central Scouting’s players to watch list. One of the older players in this year’s draft class, Meier missed the cutoff date from last year’s draft by just nine days.
Joel Salzgeber, C: Missing out on Switzerland’s final game due to injury last year, Salzgeber made the most of his limited minutes, finishing with a goal and an assist while playing under 10 minutes per game. In his lone game playing for Langnau in the U20 league, he had four points.
Simon Knak, RW: Hard worker who demonstrates details in his game. Portland’s up-tempo system suited Knak perfectly. He put up nine goals and 34 points in 49 games, making for a successful rookie season. Knak scored twice in last year’s tournament, and with another year of growth, should be one of Switzerland’s top producers.
