"Santiago Näf is playing a very good season with the juniors," SC Bern's team manager Andrew Ebbett says about the youngster. "He has a great hockey sense and has proven in his games with the first team that he is ready for the next step."
The now 19-year-old joined SCB's youth organization in 2015. Over the past three years he was a regular for their U20-Elit. This season, he recorded 49 points (17 goals) in 35 junior games. He also appeared in seven games in the National League this season (no points).
