National League

It’s no secret that the 23-year-old forward wants a shot at the NHL. With the season he’s had, he might have a legitimate chance.

«I know from his agent that some teams have contacted him,” Sven Leuenberger tells the Neue Zürcher Zeitung. He adds that, of course, it would be a pity if he were to leave the ZSC Lions, but, given Suter’s season, it would not be a surprise to him. Suter's contract, which runs until 2023, includes an NHL out clause for the summer of 2020.

Suter, for his part, remains tight-lipped: “I am not involved there. I’ll occupy myself with that after the season. We are hopefully not done yet.» Pius Suter is the first Swiss National League top scorer since Damien Brunner. In 50 games for the Lions, he recorded 30 goals and 23 assists.
