With just a week to go before the start of the Swiss League, the defending champions have seen the return of Sondre Olden to the lineup. The Norwegian forward sustained an injury on August 11 following a collision during a game.
For a comeback, however, HC La Chaux-de-Fonds had to deal with two absences due to injuries: Sandis Smons and Kay Schweri. The latter is expected to return in a week, Arcinfo reports, meaning that he could be in the opening lineup next Friday.
Moreover, according to the same newspaper, HC La Chaux-de-Fonds has acquired the B-license of Genève-Servette HC's young forward Antoine Guignard. The 19-year-old was in the lineup yesterday against HC Sierre.
