Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Roman Josi
Roman Josi was born on June 1, 1990 in Bern, Switzerland. A standout in the Swiss junior league, he was selected in the second round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft by the Nashville Predators.

Josi would make his North American debut in the AHL for the Milwaukee Admirals and would record an impressive 40 points in 69 games. In February of 2010 Josi would represent Switzerland at the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

In 2011-12, Josi would get his first taste of NHL action. In 52 games for the Predators he recorded 16 points while establishing himself as an NHL defender.

During the 2014-15 season, Josi's game went to the next level as he would score 15 goals and 55 points over 81 games. This put him in the conversation as an all-star defenceman in the NHL. The following season he posted a career-high 61 points and was selected to play in the NHL All-Star Game.

On September 19, 2017, Josi was named the eighth captain in Predators franchise history.

On the international stage, Josi led the surprising Swiss team to a silver medal victory at the 2013 Hockey World Championship in Stockholm, Sweden. He was named tournament MVP as well as best defenceman.
