As Geoff Ward, head coach of Lausanne HC, tells the newspaper, Henrik Haapala is getting closer to his comeback but is not ready yet. His condition is evaluated each day, meaning that he is uncertain for the two games of the weekend. Haapala sustained an injury against Biel before the international break.
Closer to a comeback but also still unavailable is Miikka Salomäki. The Finn practiced today but with a distinctive jersey. He, too, needs a few more days before returning to the lineup.
