RAPHAEL DÍAZ  Switzerland  / Spain

BIRTHYEAR 1986-01-09 BIRTHPLACEBaar, SUI

Diaz plays the game of an all-around defenseman, as he can line-up in all situations. He is a decent skater with quick feet and good top-end speed. He is very smart and can guide a powerplay with his patience, strong vision and hard shot from the point. Isn't strong enough to handle big forwards in front of the net. (by Rafik Soliman - Jan 13)

Possesses dual citizenship due to his Spanish father and Swiss mother.
