National League

As the season of the SCL Tigers has come to an end, Der Bund writes that the soon-to-be former head coach might remain in Switzerland.

Apparently, Rikard Franzén is in talks with a National League club for a job as an assistant coach, and there are also contacts with clubs in the Swiss League. Franzén's expiring contract with the Tigers was not renewed for the upcoming season.

As for the roster, Der Bund informs that in addition to the already known departures, four more Swiss players will leave the club, as their contracts have not been extended. These players are Toms Andersons, Loïc In-Albon, Stefan Rüegsegger, and Alain Bircher. The latter might end up with the Lakers, the same source reports.

Regarding the three import-players currently on the roster, Robbie Earl and Marcus Nilsson surely will not remain in the Emmental, while Ben Maxwell is of interest to the Tigers but may leave them for the SHL.
