In fact, Villard revealed that the club is currently in negotiations with the 32-year-old defenseman. However, he also indicated that a solution regarding the salary still has to be found, it will have to be reduced significantly.

On another note, the Seelanders' CEO categorically denied any interests in a signing of Mark Streit. A potential arrival of the 39-year-old veteran in Biel is probably off the table.
