Christian Marti has been very good this year for the Armada, I'm not sure how your defense stacks up but I guess he should be a top-pairing guy for the Swiss. He's a complete D, hits real hard and has very good hockey sense.

Is Baertschi eligible this year?

Also are they any big name players on this years team that are likely to get drafted this year?

Really enjoyed Bertschys game last year. Enjoyed watching the energy he brought to each game. Last year he was all over the ice and went hard every shift. Was fun to watch.

Baertschi is 20 so he is not eligible this year.

Tanner Richard has been great for the Guelph Storm this season. I take it he will be playing a major role on this team?

Martschini, Berschy, Richard should all play major roles. The Swiss always scare me in the World Juniors.

Not a big name, but I could see Mirco Müller garnering some attention come draft time.

He already played for France for their U18 team at IIHF event.

@MB Stars - He is born in St.Louis, while his father played there.

I would take a closer look at Phil Baltisberger. Was 15 when he first played against pros and had his first WJC at this age as well.

HF even made an article about him.

But his draft year will be 2014. I guess he'll be picked within the first three rounds.

Bozon is born in St. Louis from French parents, he holds both French and American citizenship, but he's not Swiss.

Regarding his hockey career, he first played in Germany when his father was playing for Mannheim, then went to Lugano, Geneva and back to Lugano, following his father playing and coaching career.

I am not too familiar with all the names on this team but with all returnee's you guys should be really good. Both Sweden and especially Russia were lucky to get wins against the Swiss last year.

It's a solid team with no high-end talent. Goaltending could be a problem, I don't think that Boltshauser is that good. The team should at least be enough good to avoid relegation. And who knows, CZE or FIN shouldn't take their games vs. Swi too easy.

Yess, the swiss team looks pretty solid, and i agree that goaltending probably wont be as good as the last few years.

The Cze and the finns will have a great team, both with the best since years, so i wont count any points in , in this games.....

Even though never say never, the swiss were able to surprise in single games in the past few years, but for sure they wont compete on for medalrounds, semifinal etc.
If everything goes right, Quarterfinal exit my guess.

Some of these players should feature on the team and be key.

Switzerland would have to beat at least one of CZE, FIN or SWE to go to the Quarters. If they just beat LAT it'll be relegation round, which is the probable way, but as I said, it's a solid team which could surprise. Avoiding relegation is the main goal and whith this team this sould be possible.

Head coach of the team is Sean Simpson who is also leading the Swiss senior team.

Also, Nyfeller played better in the world jr.a challenge than Boltshauser so may give him an edge. Zangger, Bertchy, Leone, Fazzini and Sieber were top 5 on team in scoring. Players of the game for the team in all games were, Zangger in 2 games, Boltshauser in 1, Nyfeller in 1, and Fazzini in one.

Agreed, wouldn't be too surprised if they would beat one of those teams ranked above them. The Swiss won't be a walk in the park for anyone, not even for the Swedes.

Boltshauser seems to have good numbers, don't see how he won't be the number one. Melvin Nyffeler is only 5'8 too ..
