There has been a lot of talk about a possible departure to the NHL for the 26-year-old. It was not yet meant to be. As Haas mentions in an interview with the Journal du Jura (relayed by SwissHabs), there is still interest in him by some teams, especially the Calgary Flames.
However, the forward has no NHL out-clause in his contract with SC Bern, which still lasts until 2020. Thus, Haas prefers to leave this business to his agent and the club and not get involved himself. One thing he states is that he will only move overseas if he receives a one-way contract.
Haas is in his second season with the Bears. Last year, he recorded 17 goals and 32 assists in 58 games.Last Update: 28 September 2018, 10:07 AM | esi*
