you Are excited before a game, and if Yes, do you have a Trick to resist?
You are a bit excited, but with the experience I have, and the many Games I have played, it is not so strong. I'm always a bit the same rituals before a game and then you will feel comfortable and know when I do this and that, I can show a good football game.
when did you begin to play ice hockey and why exactly hockey?
four years ago, I was for the first Time on the ice. I lived in the vicinity of the ice rink and my big sister did figure skating. Then I was always at the rink, and so it went.
when you have realized that you can be a professional?
Actually, as I made the jump to the national League A. At 18, I knew that I am one of the best in my Year, but, with the certainty that it can be really rich to be a professional, I had only 19 or 20.
ever Wanted to play on the center position?
Actually, it does, but I've also played often as a wing and like to play on both positions. Myself decided I didn't really. The coach will do, and then you grow into it, but I feel in this role very well.
"It's cool, if you have the variety."
you prefer to Play in the Club or in the national team?
I play both like. It is cool if you have the variety. In the Club you always see the same people, the national team offers a bit of variety. You can interact with other people and brings a breath of fresh Wind.
What is your favorite sports besides hockey?
I think Tennis is very cool.
How many sticks you need per season?
In about 20, I would appreciate it.
when and against whom you have made your best goal?
That was against Cristobal Huet, who then played for Lausanne. When it was exactly, I do not know more, it is likely to be about three years ago.
What do they eat usually before a game?
Mostly rice, some Pasta, chicken, salmon and vegetables.
How do you see your chances to be next year at the home world Cup play for the national team?
I hope it is. It will be very difficult, because we have many young talents, but I'll give it my Best, so I'm in.
"I'm usually around 7.30 am, eat and read the News."
what does a typical Morning look like for you?
I get up usually around 7.30 am, eat and read the News. Then I go to the Training, and around 9 PM we usually have the first team meeting.
What was the best Moment of your career?
The first Swiss championship title we won in 2012, with the ZSC Lions in Bern, was one of the most beautiful moments.
you Make special things before the game?
Yes, I'm already doing a few special things. I have a binder, for example, my floor is always the same and always at the same way. Really weird stuff, I'm not.
How to find the control with the penalty minutes?
I think it's generally good that there are penalties. In football, there are Yellow and Red cards, and then you have to play ever after with a man less. Not in hockey, well, that's why I find the 2 minutes and 10 minutes is a good solution.
What do you do in your spare time?
I like to meet with colleagues, and also like to go away something Fine to eat. And I'm doing a business degree, and a lot of work.
you Have a lot of medals at home?
Yes, I already have some. Right, the count is around eight, and then much more from the Junior times.

Where are you going in the holidays?
Last summer I was in Africa and did a Safari. That was one of the most Beautiful that I have ever made.
Could you imagine to change the Club?
That would be difficult, but I could imagine it already. If I want to keep Zurich, I will stay here.
Would you like to play in the NHL?
Yes, of course this is a dream. At my age, but it is very difficult to make this jump, and therefore it is rather unlikely.
"at the moment it's going really great."
Why it's running the ZSC this season compared to last so well?
We have a new coach, some new players and a new impetus in the team. It is a lot of positive things have come together and that is why we are going. We have self-confidence and how it works, and now we have to look at that we can maintain. It will certainly come back to more difficult times, but now it runs really super.
Gives you the new coach and also other things?
Yes, we have a slightly different game system. We play a little more aggressive, generally speaking, there are but small changes that have big impact.
you Can give in conclusion a few General tips to young athletes?
is The most Important that you have Fun in what you do. That you can make something with his friends. And if you want to be in an area really well, then you should spend as much time as possible, from early Morning until late in the evening. Then you is going to be good, no matter what it is.
