Timo Meier power 100!


Timo Meier (25) reached the plateau of 100 personal goals in the regular season in the championship of the NHL, which presented ten appearances on the night of Thursday to Friday.

Author of a goal with San Jose at the SAP Center, where the Californians bowed to Vancouver (2-5), the Appenzell right winger entered the club of 100 on the occasion of his 342nd tenure in the professional league North American. The Sharks’ No 28 had unlocked its speedometer five years earlier, to the day, December 16, 2016 in Montreal, during his first shift in NHL.

He is only the third Swiss to cross this symbolic bar. Others?

Right winger Nino Niederreiter (29), who scored twice with Carolina in the victory over Detroit at PNC Arena (5-3). Le Grison have hit the target 165 times in 679 matches.

And Nashville defenseman Roman Josi (31), who lit the lamp during the success against Colorado at Bridgestone Arena with a team weakened by an outbreak of Covid-19 cases (5-2). The Bernese has a record of 127 goals in 709 matches.

The fourth position is occupied by defender Mark Streit, retired since 2017 when he was subjected to unconditional waivers by the Montreal Canadiens (786 games, 96 goals). The Bernese is followed by the St. Welsh winger from Minnesota Kevin Fiala (365 appearances, 95 jubilations).
