Whenever a prospect is selected in the NHL Draft, their life is forever changed. Nico Hischier has been no exception to that rule since becoming the first-ever Swiss-born No. 1 overall selection in the NHL Draft. Hischier has been on the move since hearing his name called by Ray Shero and the Devils on Friday night in Chicago. Recap the 18-year-old's weekend since he became the latest New Jersey star.
