Whereas HC Lugano's defenseman has been inked to a four-year deal, Gerber will stay with the Bears for one additional season.

With these two market transactions, SC Bern has bolstered their defense for the upcoming season with an experienced player and a promising youngster. Loeffel has been with HC Lugano since 2018, while Gerber is a homegrown talent.

"Romain Loeffel plays very consistently and reliably and is a leading player in the defense" comments team manager Andrew Ebbett on the signing of the 30-year-old, who has put up at least 23 points in each of the last seven seasons.

As for Gerber, Ebbett is happy to have him as an important piece of their defense also for the upcoming season: "Gerber comes from our own junior organization, has made the leap to the first team as a young player and is now ready for the next step". The 23-year-old debuted in the National League during the 2017-18 season and ever since has recorded nine points in more than 100 games.
