Observations

January 2018 – Geisser was not able to play any games for Switzerland as he was held out all tournament with an injury, right until the deadline showing how much the Swiss wanted him to play. Once healthy he will be back to playing in the AHL, where the Bears’ defense is still decimated by injuries. Pat Quinn

 

December 2018 – Geisser has only played 18 AHL games this season as he missed a majority of October due to injury and healthy scratches. When in the line up Geisser does not do much to stand out as he is not used high in the line up (when the defense is healthy) for now but has also not done a lot to be moved up, as he only has nine shots in those 18 games. He is still learning the North American game so he will take a few seasons to really stand out in Hershey. Geisser will again be the top defenseman for Switzerland as they will lean on him in all situations and hopefully that ca boost his confidence when he returns to the AHL. Pat Quinn

 

September 2018 – Geisser was sent down to Hershey of the AHL relatively early as he has not had much experience on North American ice. Geisser will be at the Bears’ training camp and can get used to that system early. With five defensemen with AHL experience ahead of Geisser (alng with anther that can be scratched), he will see limited minutes as he develops this year in Hershey. Pat Quinn

 

January 2018 – Geisser was a stand out for Switzerland on the back end at the World Junior Championship, but the Swiss team did not have much of a punch in the tournament. In the NLA, the top Swiss league, Geisser has four points in 29 games. He is among the top four defensemen on his team, but his current production is lacking. He has scored in the past leaving the future open to a potential offensive upside. Pat Quinn
