In his planning for next season, Julien Vauclair counts to have a healthy Jonathan Hazen on the roster. Nonetheless, the team manager is cautious about it: "That's the plan. But it's always when there's first contact on the ice that we'll see how his knee has recovered."
Hazen, who still has one year left in his contract with HC Ajoie, had sustained a severe knee injury at the end of last September that limited him to eight games this past season.
On a side note, Blick reveals that Vauclair is expected to sign a defender as a fifth foreigner soon, while he is still making evaluations for a sixth import, who should be a forward.
