Each teacher would be proud, if his class within a year so would have improved. 2018, ZSC Lions under Serge Aubin for half of the season under the dash and had a negative goal difference (61:69) layers. Now, regards of the table top. You have almost two points on average, the most goals scored and the least conceded (85:57). Their increase is reflected in the testimonies of the players.
Lukas Flüeler: grade 5
Because of back problems had to stem goalie last season early exit, this Winter he is fit again, and the usual restraint. His statistics are not outstanding. But if the Team needs, he is there. And it comes to him that Ortio relieved a little.
Joni Ortio: grade 5-6
His commitment was a smart move on the part of Leuenbergers. Ortio would have denied more than five games, he would have earned with his shiny values (1,2 goals against, almost 96 percent catch rate), the best grade. The Finn accepted without complaint his role, and reflex is strong. Only in the Cup in 3:6 against Ajoie he also pulled a good evening.
Phil Baltisberger, grade 4-5
With his combative style, he has not only left Dave Sutter behind, but also a new two-year contract until 2022 deserves. He turns now to the Offensive. However, its Strengths lie in the game in the own Zone.
Tim Berni, Note 5
After a step-back, 19, has made-Year-old this season, two to the front. Naughty, mobile and playful he boosts the game, without neglecting the Defensive. Although he hardly plays on the Powerplay, he scored four goals. Sometimes he is in love to Puck.

Severin blind Bacher: grade 4-5
The veteran is still looking for his role, occurs in the meantime, but again self-confident and certain. The coaches also put Numbers on him, so he could still be a regular. The best blind Bacher, we have not seen yet.
Patrick Geering, Note 5
The Captain is almost 22 minutes of ice time per game, the hard workers in the Team. Defensive almost always solid, could also cause it to the front a little more. In the championship season 2017/18, he scored 33 points, he currently stands at 5 Assists.
Christian Marti, grade 4-5
The burly defender is a important man as a hedge in addition to Noreau and in Boxplay. He had last season again and again trouble with the pace, like he is with his positional play. Sometimes good for a noise Check, the giant of a man could use his body more.
Maxim Noreau, Note 5-6 , The canadian is under Grönborg, the active defenders want blooms, back up and scores diligently. And his recovered self-confidence affects not only the offensive game, but also in the Defensive. He has reduced his dropouts solid.
Dario Trutmann, Note 5
Of Zug proved to be a Revelation, convincing in ZSC-Defensive right off the bat. Along with Berni, he makes an excellent third back pair. He is an all-rounder who has also offensive to. With +14 he has the best balance of all the defenders.
Chris Baltisberger, grade 4-5
The militant wing has, because he achieved in front of the opposing goal trouble and the puck deflects, a place in the first Powerplay, and as four of its seven hits. For 5 against 5 players, he joined, in the meantime, in the fourth line, but still to little in appearance. But he is one who never ceases to work.
Simon Bodenmann, Note 5-6
Diligently, he fought in his first ZSC-season, and now the happiness is to come. He has already scored 12 goals and is on track to surpass his previous best (17). 8 goals he scored at the numeric level. Always snappy in the tackle, he plays "bigger" than it is to assume his Posture could be.

Dominik Diem, grade 4
A good playmaker, he has not found his role in the ZSC Lions correctly. He mostly played on the wing and not had much influence on the game. The question is: Can he lead an offensive-oriented line as the Center and hold together?
Denis Hollenstein, grade 4-5
Combative one can accuse him of anything: He is snappy in the tackle and unpleasant for the opponent. However, in the offensive game, the efficiency is missing him: Only 5 of its 66 shots found the way into the goal. This is little for a shot at Kloten three years ago, scoring 23 goals.
Marcus Kruger, Note 5
He has not many, but important goals scored: Twice he met in Overtime. The Swede is not a classic Skorer, but one that makes a lot of little things right and his strike partner better. The first season in Europe for NHL-Cracks never easy. He will only get better, unless he goes down injured with his concussion, longer.

Marco Pedretti, Note 4
In the preparation tested in the first line, he is now fix in the fourth. After a good start to the season, he is off the grid, also physically hardly accents. He should replace the Davos trailed Duke, but he has the momentum going for it.
Fredrik Pettersson, grade 4-5
The back seems to be okay, Pettersson searches again the two fights and splits over the ice. But to him, the loyalty to the game is often lacking. 19 points are just okay, 7 goals but not the goal scorer from the service, the met in his very first ZSC-season 26 times. There's room for improvement.
Raphael Prassl, Note 5
The ZSC Lions did well to keep him. The Jung center is two strong in battle, runner well, and to trust in the game to the front more and more. And even though he plays aggressively, is not he a lot of penalties. With six goals, he has surpassed his last year's yield already.
Garrett Roe, Note 6
The American is the Topcenter of the ZSC Lions since Matthews had missed. An excellent playmaker, always on the move and fearless, even though he is with his 1,71 meters, it is one of the Smallest. The best striker in the League, even better than train Hofmann.
Reto Schäppi, Note 4
His role in the ZSC is continuously becoming smaller and smaller, meanwhile, he gets in as the fourth Center is only eleven and a half minutes of ice time. With his strength, Size and experience, he should actually have more influence on the game than is currently the case.
Justin Sigrist, grade 4-5
The 20-year-old Center finds himself gradually cope better in the National League, has a good eye and fast hands. In terms of game intensity, Yes he needs to still.
Axel Simic, grade 4-5
With a good preparation, he fought his way to a surprising place at the ZSC – due to an injury he has lost him. He is not so big, but has a big fighter's heart. On the first points in the ZSC, he is still waiting.
Again a candidate for the national team: Pius Suter. (Photo: Keystone)
Pius Suter, Note 5-6
With 14 goals, the second best goalscorer of the League, with its dynamics and its straightness to Roe in front of the gate is the ideal complement. Compared to the last season, as he wrestled with himself, almost unrecognizable. He has played himself back into the Notepad fisherman for the home world Cup.
the Roman Wick, grade 4-5
the artist has become in the autumn of his career, a fighter. This is good because it benefits the Team a lot when he shoots, no goals. However, wick's offensive output has shrunk severely: he Scored 2016/17 and 17/18 are still 20 goals, there are so far 3. And it is eating away at the trust in the financial statements.
