National Hockey League

Lian Bichsel has been given a B rating, the highest among Swiss players who are projected to have a chance at the 2022 NHL Entry Draft.

Bichsel, who currently plays in Sweden, is thus projected to be drafted in the second or third round of the draft. The other five Swiss players all have C ratings and are thus projected to have a chance to be selected in the 4th, 5th, or 6th round of the draft. The list will, of course, be updated throughout the season.

The Swiss players on the list are

  • Lian Bichsel, D, Leksands IF
  • Alessio Beglieri, G, EHC Biel
  • Lorenzo Canonica, F, Shawinigan Cataractes
  • Rodwin Dionicio, D, Niagara IceDogs
  • Jonas Taibel, F, Moncton Wildcats (also holds an Austrian passport, but has played for Switzerland at the U18 level)
  • Livio Curdin Truog, F, GCK Lions
