Ice hockey: Here are the notes of the Swiss ice hockey players at the World Cup


The Swiss team was eliminated from the World Cup in the quarter-finals. A premature end that clouds the almost perfect course of the Swiss in the qualification phase.

The Swiss notes at the 2022 World Cup in Finland.

Urs Lindt/fresh focus

Patrick Fischer’s selection achieved their status as World Cup contenders in the group stage, when they clinched seven straight wins and had an almost perfect distance (20 points out of 21). But the Swiss group faltered in Thursday’s quarterfinals against the USA (0:3).

In one of the best selections – on paper – in the history of the Swiss team, captain Nico Hischier and the unpredictable Denis Malgin stood out.

Here are the scores of the Swiss national players over the entire tournament (eight games). During the evaluation, we also took into account the individual expectations, role and potential of the players.

Guardian (3)

Leonardo Genoni.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

No miracles were performed for the EV Zug goalkeeper in the quarterfinals against the USA. His poorly negotiated goal kick allowed the Americans to go 0-2. Genoni was solid as always, but not decisive this time. Percentage of stops: 89% of stops in only four terms.

Reto Bera.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The FR Gottéron goalkeeper played a decent tournament but, as always in the Fischer era, Leonardo Genoni inherited the important games. Berra was dominant in the final game of the group stage against Germany as Switzerland defended their top spot. Percent Stops: 88.3% of stops in three terms.

Sandro Aschlimann.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

He played a game against Kazakhstan (85.7% save) in which he conceded two completely avoidable goals. He doesn’t have the profile to become Switzerland’s future number one goalkeeper, but he can play a major role in major competitions in the future.

defender (8)

Dean Kukan.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The future defender of the ZSC Lions stood out offensively, where he always sensed the right moves. The Columbus Blue Jackets guard was consistent and excellent throughout the tournament.

8 games: 2 goals, 4 assists, 6 points. (+6)

Jonas Siegenthaler.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

A few unnecessary penalties that could have gotten the team in trouble. But overall, the New Jersey Devils defenseman was valuable and very solid. He brought a physical and rough dimension to the Swiss team.

8 games: 1 goal, 4 assists, 5 points. (+8)

Janis Moser.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The Arizona Coyotes guard shone on the ice with the quality of his game and his intelligence. He was particularly in the power play at the wand.

8 games: 1 goal, 3 assists, 4 points. (-1)

Michael forums.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The Ticino is neither mobile nor fast enough to do well at this level. Too many penalties (like against USA which led to a 0-1 draw) because he was late. So defensively not reliable enough.

8 games: 1 goal, 0 assists, 1 point. (+4)

Tobias Geiser.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The AHL full-back, who will return to EV Zug next season, has shown solid form. With a major frame cut to international hockey, he played an encouraging tournament going forward.

8 games: 0 goals, 1 assist, 1 point. (+1)

Dominik Egli.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The Thurgau did well against the “small” teams, but against Canada he looked lost, mainly because of his size. Adept at forward play but too easy to defend at this level. As in the 0-2 action in favor of the Americans in the quarterfinals.

8 games: 1 goal, 0 assists, 1 point. (+1)

Andrea Glaser.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The Lausanne HC backcountry did well in their first World Cup. Sick during the tournament, Dominik Egli overtook him in the hierarchy. A defender to check in the future.

7 games: 0 goals, 1 assist, 1 point. (+1)

Christian Martin.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

Curiously, despite his size, Patrick Fischer didn’t really expect him. The Zurich native played little and spent several evenings in the stands. Like in the quarterfinals.

5 games: 0 goal, 1 assist, 1 point. (+2)

attacker (14)

Nico Hischier.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The selection captain orchestrated the MVP’s performances during the group stage and was illustrated by his leadership on the ice. Unfortunately, he played his worst match of the tournament against the Americans in the quarterfinals. Otherwise he would have gotten the highest score.

8 games: 5 goals, 3 assists, 8 points. (+1)

Timo Meier.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The Appenzeller probably lacked success (several shots against the post), which slightly clouded his overall performance. He was up and running at every appearance on the ice but left everyone hungry at the end.

8 games: 3 goals, 5 assists, 8 points. (+1)

Damien Riat.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

Alongside the stars of the NHL, the Geneva player from Lausanne HC advanced from extra to winger in the first block. He did a job behind the scenes and fulfilled his supporting role very well.

5 games: 1 goal, 0 assists, 1 point. (+1)

Dennis Malgin: 6

Dennis Malgin.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The ZSC Lions forward played a world-class tournament offensively. Some nice goals. Omnipresent in attack and technically superior. He was also the only really balanced Swiss player in the quarterfinals.

8 games: 5 goals, 7 assists, 12 points. (+5)

Pius Suter.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The Detroit Red Wings player was able to pull himself out of the game in the shadow of Hischier and Meier. The Zurich native played a very good tournament with some important goals on the clock. He also stood out with his grinta, a new facet of his game that we didn’t really know about him. Like Hischier, he wasn’t good at quarters.

8 games: 3 goals, 5 assists, 8 points. (+2)

Darius Simon.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The Ticino lacked success and didn’t continue his incredible momentum in the play-off final. But he has worked hard for his linemates Malgin and Suter.

8 games: 1 goal, 3 assists, 4 points. (-1)

Enzo Corvi.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

From a statistical point of view, the center of HC Davos delivered the goods, even if, like Thürkauf, it caught the eye more strongly during the Olympic Games in Beijing. Released very quickly due to injury in the quarterfinals.

8 games: 0 goals, 7 assists, 7 points. (+2)

Fabrice Herzog.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The EV Zug striker was good alongside Graubünden, Corvi and Ambühl but his goal tally should have been better given the chances he created. Down, however, against the Americans in the quarterfinals.

8 games: 3 goals, 3 assists, 6 points. (+3)

Andreas Ambuehl.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The Dean played an excellent tournament despite struggling against Canada, the only top-flight team he faced in the qualifying round. Even at 38, Ambühl was valuable for the selection.

8 games: 3 goals, 2 assists, 5 points. (+3)

Calvin Thürkauf.
Pascal Müller/freshfocus

He lacked the dynamism in skating, but Thürkauf is a player of the future for the national team. It had been far more effective and comfortable at the Olympics on the smaller NHL-style rinks.

6 games: 2 goals, 0 assists, 2 points. (+3)

Christoph Bertschi.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

Future FR striker Gottéron did the job. Precious for his versatility, he featured prominently in boxplay in particular. One can wonder, though, why he didn’t earn a slightly higher spot in the lineup.

8 games: 0 goals, 2 assists, 2 points. (+3)

Philip Kurashev.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The Chicago Blackhawks forward eventually transitioned from the front row wing to the middle of the fourth block. A real tournament, but nothing more. It was used in his defense.

8 games: 1 goal, 3 assists, 4 points. (+1)

Marco Miranda (in red).

Marco Miranda (in red).

Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The GE Servette forward did what he could with the little playing time available. An nevertheless bizarre summons by Patrick Fischer. It’s good for him that he was on the trip, but he’s not an international player (yet).

4 games: 0 goals, 0 assists, 0 points. (0)

Tristan Scherwey.
Urs Lindt/fresh focus

The CP Bern striker stayed true to himself: brave. Scherwey did what was expected of him and was the aggressive leader of the team. Unfortunately, he was eliminated from the tournament last Sunday against France with an ankle injury.

5 games: 0 goals, 3 assists, 3 points (+2)
