Efficient and versatile are the words that most come to mind when describing Moser. He played in all situations for Biel-Bienne this season, skating on the team’s top defensive pair, top penalty kill, and top power play units, and he showed a lot of leadership despite his relatively young age on the roster. He has a mature defensive game and is able to consistently make smart decisions with the puck on his stick. He shines most as a pure defender, using a long stick that allows him to control and maintain gaps and close off passing lanes with strong stick positioning. Plays very aggressively on opposing puck carriers, quickly pressuring them in order to limit time and space and force turnovers to regain possession of the puck, all while very seldom being caught over-committing to one side of the ice. He is not the most dynamic skater or flashiest attacker, but his play transitioning the puck is smart and efficient, often displaying strong outlet passes to start offensive transitions for his team. In the offensive zone he focuses on making smart, low-danger passes that, while not overtly threatening, maintain offensive-zone possession for his team. This also allows him to quarterback the team’s power play at the top of the umbrella with relative ease. He also does a good job of picking his moments to pinch at the offensive blueline and join the attack deeper in the zone. He needs to work on his shot, though, from the release to his accuracy to his velocity. Top speed will also need some improvement, as he can get out-skated at times. The 21-year-old will probably be the oldest player picked in the 2021 draft, and considering how much his game has improved over the past few seasons there are sure to be a few teams determined to not let him slide too far before getting picked. Being that much closer to being NHL-ready can definitely be seen as a perk as well.
