For their two games before the international break, EHC Biel can count on Fabio Hofer and Yanik Burren, the Journal du Jura reports. Hofer sustained a knee injury towards the end of September, while Burren was dealing with a neck injury.
As for Mike Künzle, the forward is questionable for the weekend. He was suffering from a cut on his foot. For his part, Alexandr Iakovenko (upper-body injury) might have to wait until 2024 to return to game action: "He probably won't play again this year," states video coach Thomas Zamboni to the newspaper.
Finally, Aleksi Heponiemi (knee) and Ian Derungs (foot) are expected to step up the pace next week and return to action after the international break.
