After the Tages-Anzeiger reported of the possible deal, the two team managers confirm their intentions to Klaus Zaugg (Watson). For Nussbaumer and Hischier, the change of teams would have happened anyway at the end of the season.
Whereas HCD's Raeto Raffainer confirms that Valentin Nussbaumer has signed with them for next season, also Luca Hischier is close to signing a deal with EHC Biel: "We have an agreement," Biel's team manager Martin Steinegger says, "but we haven't signed the contract yet." According to Zaugg, it will be a three-year deal for Hischier.
Moreover, the clubs have found solutions for their imports Perttu Lindgren and David Ullström, who have underperformed lately or, as Martin Steinegger says about Ullström: "He's no longer happy with his situation with us."
