According to L'Express-L'Impartial, HC Ajoie's two import-forwards Jonathan Hazen (photo) and Philip-Michaël Devos, as well as HC La Chaux-de-Fonds' Dominic Forget are being courted by HC Fribourg-Gottéron, Genève-Servette HC, and HC Ambrì-Piotta. All three teams had to release some of their import players for their respective national teams and are trying to replace them as quickly as possible.

HC Fribourg-Gottéron has already come to an agreement with Ajoie's Philip-Michaël Devos, who will join the team for this weekend's games. Dominic Forget, on the other hand, is set to join HC Ambrì-Piotta, La Liberté writes (relayed by SwissHabs).

According to the Tribune de Genève, Jonathan Hazen will probably end up with Genève-Servette HC. HC Ajoie has confirmed that he will play in the National League this weekend, but that a contract has yet to be signed. Official confirmations are expected over the course of the day.
