Frölunda and Malmö had also been interested in the Swede, but Olofsson decided to stay near Bern in order to provide more stability for his family. Also, they have come to like living in Switzerland, as team manager Marc Eichmann reveals in the club's press release.
Jesper Olofsson signed with SC Bern at the end of December. In 32 regular-season games, he recorded ten goals and 13 assists. In the postseason, he added three goals and two assists to that tally.
