Because defender Miro Zryd suffered a hand-injury, team manager Marc Eichmann has signed the 34-year-old Sebastian Schilt.

26-year-old Miro Zryd suffered the injury during a training session in the past week. For how long he will be sidelined is not yet known, as further evaluations are needed. With Sebastian Schilt, the Tigers know what they get. The veteran defenseman already suited up for them in the past two seasons and has been practicing with them lately.

Moreover, the SCL Tigers announce that they will have to make do without their goaltender Ivars Punnenovs for two weeks. He joined the Latvian national team yesterday and will take part in the Olympic qualification tournament.

This morning, the Berner Zeitung reported that the Tigers are looking to extend the contract of Punnenovs, which will expire at the end of the season. Team manager Marc Eichmann is awaiting his decision.
