Team manager Marc Eichmann has still a lot of decisions to make in regard to his 2021-22 roster. Some decisions will, however, be made for him.

According to the Berner Zeitung, Julian Schmutz has received an offer from HC Davos and the team is confident that he will take them up on it. The forward, however, only states that he has several options and that he has not made a decision yet.

Federico Lardi, on the other hand, will put an end to his professional hockey career at the end of this season, the same source reports. The 35-year-old defenseman spent most of his career, apart from a four-year stint in Lausanne, playing for the SCL Tigers.

As for the rest of the team, team manager Marc Eichmann is in talks with Samuel Erni and Nolan Diem. While some of the other players will likely not be able to stay with the Tigers, Eichmann states that everyone has a chance to earn a contract.

As for players from other teams, the Berner Zeitung reports that Etienne Froidevaux (Lausanne HC) and Yannick-Lennart Albrecht (EV Zug) are of interest to the team. However, Eichmann had told Watson a couple of days ago that the salary expectations of Albrecht's team are outside of their possibilities.
