The Swiss League loses one of its major players. In fact, Roman Wake decided to end his career, after spending the ninth season in Zurich and ending in a semi-final elimination at the hands of Geneva. Drafted on the fifth lap (156th) by Ottawa in 2004, the 35-year-old retired from the pro with 748 National League appearances in both legs and 486 points (222 goals).
Growing up in Kloten, after making his elite debut in 2002 in Flyers Shirt, Wake has two parentheses lived in the US: 1st in WHL with Red Deer Rebels between 2004 and 2006; The second was in 2010-11, when he played 7 NHL matches with the Senators and won the AHL title with Binghamton.
After returning to Switzerland and after a new season with the pilots, he transferred in 2012 to the black cousins of ZSC, with whom he won titles in 2014 and 2018 and the cup in 2016.
Unfortunately, you’re saying goodbye to me and you badly in front of the right fire wallpaper. Great moments, loads of celebrations of goals and legendary wick tricks in memories. So on my mind I’m not shouting: Rrrrrrooooman Wiiiiiick!
