Today exciting news for Winnipeg Jets fans has been announced. Despite their round-one playoff exit the season still keeps going for one Winnipeg Jet. Reports have confirmed that Nino Niederreiter is going to the World Championships.

Representing your country is an honor for any hockey player especially at an event like the World Championships. This summer that honor has been afforded to Jets forward Nino Niederreiter who will play with Switzerland.

He was the captain last spring.

It remains to be seen if Nino Niederreiter who was the captain during his last trip to the World Championships will get that opportunity again.

Nico wore an 'A' last year with Switzerland. I believe it was Nino Niederreiter or who was the captain.

Hischier was captain of the 2022 Worlds for 🇨🇭.

They haven't announced who is wearing letters yet.

Nino Niederreiter joins a roster including other NHL stars such as Nico Hischier, Jonas Siegenthaler, Akira Schmid, and Philipp Kurashev. Of these NHL players Nino Niederreiter likely has the best chance to succeed along with Nico Hischier of the New Jersey Devils.

Absolutely no surprise here Nico Hischier, Jonas Siegenthaler and Akira Schmid all named to the final 🇨🇭roster for Worlds.

They make up 3 of the 5 NHL players on the roster.

Nino Niederreiter (WPG) has joined the team as the latest addition.


Team Switzerland will rely heavily on their NHL influence to help them win games during this tournament. Hopefully, for Nino Niederreiter, this can be a springboard to a productive summer and improved 2024-25 season.
