mt_ignoreNLA - According to the Blick, the ZSC Lions have found their fourth import-player in 17-year-old American forward Auston Matthews. The young talent is widely projected to become the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Matthews recently played the U18 World Championship in Switzerland with the US-team. He not only won the gold medal, but was also voted the tournament's best forward and MVP, thanks to scoring eight goals and seven assists for 15 points in seven games. (rlu)

UPDATE As TSN journalist Darren Dreger reports on Twitter, Austin Matthews' family advisor Pat Brisson has made clear that playing in Switzerland is an option, but that there is nothing signed yet. Matthews is expected to make a decision this week. (rlu) - 10 May 2015, 9:37 PM
