SOCIAL Melvin Nyffeler Twitter 



A smallish Goaltender with very good composure and who has excellent anticipation. Melvin Nyffeler plays the angles well and due to his lack of size challenges shooters, cuts the angles and plays well outside his crease. Needs a strong defense, who he can trust with the defensive zone coverage, so he can play his style. Nyffeler has a very good glove and solid rebound control, as he doesn’t allow many second chances. His calm and confident play can stabilize a team’s defensive game. (by Rafik Soliman, April 2016)
