May 2014 – Pushing his way up the draft rankings is Kevin Fiala, a dynamic Swiss-born forward with game-breaking offensive talents. Attacking through the neutral zone with sharp edges and quick feet, Fiala is a dangerous forward inside the offensive blueline with his ability to dangle his way to the net showcasing his quick puck skills. He’s not overly big but his skating does feature elements of elusiveness and that will bode well for his future. He led the Switzerland at the 2014 Under-18 World Championships and finished as one of the tournament leaders with four goals and nine points in five games. Graduating to Sweden’s top league (SHL), Fiala transitioned very nicely with HV71 tallying 11 points in 17 games with the big club Fiala is expected to be a late 1st round to second round selection at the 2014 NHL Draft.
