Agency

Bichsel plays with energy, violence, even, and that will endear him to any coach. He takes hit to make plays but mostly likes to dish them, especially in neutral-zone pinches. He has great habits all over the ice, scanning and using his stick and denying space and switching on his check. -EliteProspects 2022 NHL Draft Guide
