The Nashville Predators used their first round pick this past summer on an up-and-coming Swiss forward named Kevin Fiala. If the hockey world hadn’t heard of him before today, they have now.
Fiala went coast-to-coast, easily whizzing past Czech defenders, to pot his second goal of the period in Switzerland’s 5-2 victory in their 2015 World Junior Championship opener.
With Filip Forsberg, Calle Jarnkrok and James Neal, the future of the Predators looks pretty bright, eh?
