RAPHAEL DÍAZ  Switzerland  / Spain
a.k.a. "Rafael Díaz"

Open print friendly window (pop-up) views: 68581

BIRTHYEAR 1986-01-09 BIRTHPLACEBaar, SUI
AGE 29 NATION Switzerland / Spain
POSITION D SHOOTS R
HEIGHT 181 cm / 5'11" WEIGHT 90 kg / 198 lbs
YOUTH TEAM EV Zug CONTRACT 16/17
CAP HIT $700,000


Plays the game of an allround defenseman, as he can line-up in all situations. Raphael Diaz is a decent skater with quick feets and good top-end speed. He is very smart and can guide a Power Play 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)

Posseses double citizenship because of his Spanish father and Swiss mother.

Sister: Daniela Diaz (external link - former Swiss women Nationalplayer)
