Roman Wick (born December 30, 1985) Swiss professional ice hockey player who currently plays for the ZSC Lions of the National League (NL). Wick previously played for EHC Kloten and for the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted in the fifth round (156th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Senators who signed him to a one-year contract in 2010.
Roman Wick began his hockey career in 2002 with the Kloten Flyers, for whom he had already played in the junior leagues. He played two seasons with the Flyers in the NLA before being drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Wick moved to the Western Hockey League (WHL) from 2004 to 2006 with the Red Deer Rebels and the Lethbridge Hurricanes. He returned to the Kloten Flyers for the 2006–07 season. After a tryout in 2007 with the Senators, he returned again to Kloten for the 2007–08 season and played there for three seasons.
In July 2010, the Ottawa Senators signed Wick to a two-year, two-way contract. The deal had been rumored since June, but was not finalized until July 14. After September training camp, Wick was assigned to the Ottawa Senator's affiliate team Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League (AHL). Wick was called up to Ottawa in February 2011, and played his first NHL game on February 25, 2011 in Buffalo against the Buffalo Sabres.
In 2011, he moved back to Switzerland and played again for the Kloten Flyers after having signed a three-years deal. In Summer 2012, Wick moved to the rival team ZSC Lions following financial issues that involved his former Club.
On March 6, 2014, Wick agreed to a three-year contract extension for a reported CHF 2.4 million.
Wick has represented Switzerland on the international stage at the World U18 Championships in 2003, the World U20 Championship in 2005, the World Championships in 2008 and 2009, and the Olympic Games in 2010.
