Halifax’s Nico Hischier Goes # 1 In The NHL Draft!

In case you missed it, the Halifax Mooseheads star forward Nico Hischier was the 1st overall NHL draft pick!

Nico says he couldn’t find the words to express how he felt about becoming the highest-drafted Switzerland-born player in history when chosen No. 1 by the New Jersey Devils at the 2017 NHL Draft in Chicago on Friday.

Moose Country is still beaming with pride as we can claim yet another top NHL pick like Nathan MacKinnon was in 2013 with Colorado.
