Nico Hischier is a highly skilled offensive forward. Smart at both end of the ice, as he plays a reliable two-way game. Has good size and still room to get stronger. Excellent skater with good quickness and top speed. Possesses strong hockey sense and on-ice awareness for both attacking opponents and his teammates and with this ability he can escape fore-checkers and make quick plays, as he sees passing lanes before they open. Has game-breaking abilities and can turn the outcome of a game. Nico Hischier leads by example has the potential to be a top-line center and a clutch player his Team can turn to late in the game. (by Rafik Soliman, Mai 2017)

Brother: Luca Hischier

An incredible stickhandler who thrives in possession and can make defenders look foolish, Futureconsiderations.ca 2017
Hischier skates well and has a surprising burst of speed that he uses to catch opponents off guard when rushing the puck, Hockeyprospect.com 2017
