Scouting Reports:
“One of the most dominant players in Junior hockey in 2017, Hischier is an elite package of skill, skating ability, and smarts. Fantastic three-zone player and has the hands to both distribute the puck and finish in tight, possesses great vision in the offensive zone and uses his skating to create separation.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“A smooth-skating, playmaking center…good skating agility and top speed, but is more quick than fast…is able to make quick turns and displays good lateral movement…not big or strong, but still shows willingness to take hits and battle for space…goes into board battles and uses his body to fight for pucks…excellent playmaking instincts, vision and passing skills…puts puck where his linemates can best utilize the chance…an incredible stickhandler who thrives in possession and can make defenders look foolish…competitive and driven…poise is a major standout attribute…dangerous when given time, especially on the power play as he takes full control of the play from the half wall with the puck, using his impressive agility, hands and vision to make plays…plays a responsible defensive game…one of the best talents to come out of Switzerland.” – Future Considerations
