The 34-year-old Canadian might not receive the Swiss passport as quickly as EHC Biel's leadership had hoped.

"It's true," EHCB's team manager Martin Steinegger says to 20 minutes and confirms that the naturalization of Marc-Antoine Pouliot might not happen anytime soon. "Everything is taking longer than we had hoped at first." In fact, Steinegger does not count on his center to become a Swiss citizen during the upcoming season.

Steinegger, however, is not too worried about it: "I always thought it would be a bonus if this naturalization happened." As of today it looks like EHC Biel will start the season with four import-players, including Pouliot. "And I think that will also be the case for the last game of the upcoming season," Steinegger says.

Marc-Antoine Pouliot's contract with the Seelanders is valid until the end of the season. In the past season, he suited up in a total of 51 games in red and yellow and recorded 36 points (15 goals).
