Fabrice Herzog (born 9 December 1994) is a Swiss professional ice hockey forward currently playing for HC Davos in the National League (NL). He was drafted 142nd overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
As a youth, Herzog played local team Pikes EHC Oberthurgau before joining the junior program of EV Zug. In his second season of Elite Junior A, Herzog made his professional debut with EV Zug in the 2012–13 season, appearing in 20 games for 4 points.
After his selection to the Maple Leafs in the off-season, Herzog opted to play major junior hockey in North America in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League after he was selected 42nd overall in the 2013 CHL Import Draft by the Québec Remparts. Herzog adapted quickly with the Remparts and was amongst the team's top scorers with 58 points in 61 games. Following an opening round post-season defeat, Herzog continued his 2013–14 season, by agreeing to an amateur try-out contract with the Maple Leafs American Hockey League affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, on 3 April 2014. Herzog featured in five scoreless games with the Marlies.
On 6 June 2014, without a contract offer from the Maple Leafs, Herzog opted to continue his development in his homeland, returning to EV Zug, on a one-year deal. During the 2014–15 season, Herzog agreed to a two-year contract with top NLA club, ZSC Lions to commence the following year.
On 16 November 2018, Herzog signed a two-year contract with HC Davos for the 2019–20 season and through the 2020–21 season.
International play[edit | edit source]
Herzog first played in the Swiss national program at the 2012 IIHF World U18 Championships. He later made his full international debut after he was selected to the Swiss national team to participate at the 2017 IIHF World Championship in Germany/France. Herzog impressively scored the game-tying and overtime winning goal for Switzerland in a round-robin comeback win over Canada on 13 May 2017.
