EHC Biel will decide today whether Luca Hischier (knee contusion) will be in the lineup. Mike Künzle (shoulder contusion) might also play, but it is less likely that the fans will see him tonight than Hischier.
While two players thus seem to be ready to make a comeback soon, another player has been added to the infirmary: Matteo Reinhard. The 18-year-old forward suffered a contusion in a junior game and will thus not be in the lineup. However, they hope that he will return to the ice in the middle of the next week. His participation in the World Juniors should not be in danger.
