Was reliable defender for Team Switzerland at the 2008 World Junior Championships and key player at the Under-18 IIHF World Championships, posting five points (1-4).


Gained valuable experience and confidence playing regularly with Bern, a top team in the senior Swiss league. Good playmaking defenseman with good decision making ability and ability to make tape-to-tape passes. Not an overly offensive defenseman and needs to improve on his physical play.
