NLA - Team manager Martin Steinegger is not the only member of EHC Biel, who is not sure about Reto von Arx joining the team. Sandro Wyssbrod, delegate of the Board of Directors, also seems not too keen on this idea.

"A signing of Reto von Arx has never been an option", tells Wyssbrod the SonntagsZeitung. Head coach Kevin Schläpfer would like to have the 38-year-old veteran on his team, as he told journalist Klaus Zaugg last week. However, with the Board of Directors and the team manager not really supporting his idea, this endeavour might get difficult for him.

In other news, EHC Biel will also increase their budget for the next season, as the newspaper further reveals. The Seelanders will have CHF 2,5 million more at their disposal than in the 2014-15 season. The budget for the upcoming season will thus be at CHF 12,5 million. (mso)
