Brandon Pirri headed to Swiss League

Brandon Pirri has signed over seas in the Swiss National League, with the ZSC Lions. This is the same team that Kevin Klein signed with just last week. Brandon wasn’t a huge part of the Rangers team last season, he put up 18 points in 60 games. He is a lethal shooter, who just never was solid enough defensively to keep the minutes up. However at the beginning of the season, he looked good scoring 9 power play points and netting 3 game winners. This move to the Swiss league, isn’t too much of a surprise as he wasn’t going to get re-signed by the Rangers and there was much interest league wide. Remember as well just like Klein, moving to Swiss League, makes them eligible for the Olympics, and with NHL players not participating look for these player to express interest.
