Pius Suter, the top scorer in the National League last season, has now made it to the NHL. In his sixth game with Chicago, he scored the first goals and the first hat trick.
Accordingly, Pius Suter was the big figure in the Blackhawks’ 6-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago’s second win of the season. The 24-year-old from Zurich with roots at EHC Wallisellen played in Chicago’s first storm line between Captain-Superstar Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat.
With his first two NHL goals to 1: 0 and 2: 0, Pius Suter just had to push it into the open housing after some nice preparatory work. When the goal was 5: 2, however, Suter brilliantly took over the puck in the neutral zone, attacked and defeated goalkeeper Jonathan Bernier with a perfectly placed wrist shot.
Suter’s hat trick
Before the start of the season in the NHL, Suter played six games in both the Swiss League and the National League. He scored two goals each for the GCK Lions and the ZSC Lions. In his first six games in the best league in the world, he has already scored three goals.
With Philipp Kurashev, the second Swiss player in the ranks of the Blackhawks scored 6-2.
