Genève-Servette HC has secured the services of another young talent for the upcoming season: Simon Le Coultre has been playing for the Moncton Wildcats in the QMJHL for the past three seasons and represented the Swiss U20 national team in the past two World Junior Championships.
"Simon is the country's best hope in defense," head coach Chris McSorley says. "Talented, intelligent, and a very good skater, Simon is also a playmaker. We are looking forward to building our defense with Simon as one of the main elements." Le Coultre will now return to Switzerland, where he is set to undergo shoulder surgery.
Simon Le Coultre is already the third young talent that the Grenats have signed for the upcoming season. From the ZSC Lions, they have already acquired forward Marco Miranda, 20, and defenseman Roger Karrer, 21.
