NHL: Kevin Fiala and Los Angeles eliminated from the play-offs

There are only two Swiss left in the first round of the NHL play-offs: Bernese defender from Nashville Roman Josi (33 years old) and Zurich center from Vancouver Pius Suter (27 years old), who will face each other for a sixth time on Saturday (1 Swiss hour). The Canucks lead 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.

During the night from Wednesday to Thursday, 24 hours after the Grisons winger from Winnipeg Nino Niederreiter (31 years old), it was the St. Gallen striker from Los Angeles Kevin Fiala (27 years old) who saw his season come to an end. The Kings lost 4-3 at Rogers Place in Edmonton against the Oilers, who won in five games.

Credited with an assist in Alberta, the Swiss had a mixed 2024 series: he only scored twice while delivering a positive differential (+1).

This premature elimination of the Californian club could benefit the Swiss team, currently in the preparation phase for the World Championship which will be held from May 10 to 26 in the Czech Republic.

If he is healthy, Kevin Fiala could join the selection led by Patrick Fischer.
