The Washington Capitals have decided that the best thing for Tobias Geisser’s development is to return to Switzerland. The team has announced a loan of Geisser to EV Zug of the Swiss NLA after just seven games with the Hershey Bears.
Geisser, 20, was a fourth-round pick of the Capitals in 2017 and spent last season in the AHL, but has had trouble bringing any sort of offensive game to North America. The 6’4″ defenseman has just one point in 54 career AHL games.
While offense was obviously never his calling card, he’ll have to be able to move the puck more effectively if he wants to continue moving up the depth chart in Washington.
