NATIONAL TEAM - As Angelo Rocchinotti (Blick) reports on Twitter, EHCB's Gaëtan Haas (photo) and SCB's Thomas Rüfenacht have to leave the Swiss camp. Predators' Kevin Fiala on the other hand will be joining the national team.
NLB - HC Red Ice and forward Vitaly Lakhmatov have extended their contract for an additional year. The 33-year-old forward will therefore stay with Red Ice at least until the end of the 2015-16 season.
NHL - After SC Bern already informed that their forward Christoph Bertschy will leave them in direction of Minnesota, now also the Minnesota Wild have confirmed the transfer. Bertschy has signed a three-year, entry level contract.
