According to the Berner Zeitung, he will also miss tonight's game. It is also likely he will miss some more because of the mandatory quarantine period he will have to go through once he returns to Switzerland.

In other news, Rikard Franzén's contract with the SCL Tigers will expire at the end of this season. The Swede would like to stay in Langnau, but apparently, no concrete talks have taken place thus far. According to Franzén himself, there is interest in him from a Swedish team as well.

Franzén was announced as the successor of Heinz Ehlers back in May. Prior to his appointment as head coach, he had been working as an assistant coach for the Tigers for two seasons.
