The captain of the Nashville Predators, who holds a seat in SC Bern's board of directors, believes that he would not have had the chance to grow as a player as quickly if there had been more import-players back then: "I was able to play a lot of power play early on and got a lot of ice time. If there had been ten foreigners on the team back then, that probably wouldn't have been possible."
Based on his own experience and with view on the national team, Josi promotes the promotion of young talents: "The more Swiss players we can develop at a young age and the more players we can give the chance to play in the National League the better for Swiss ice hockey, the better for the national team."
