Christoph Bertschy is all but confirmed to have signed with HC Fribourg-Gottéron. "We wanted to keep him. We did everything we could. We offered him a great contract. But he preferred another option. That is his choice and I respect it. Especially since Christoph was honest with us throughout the process", Lausanne HC's Director of Hockey Operations Petr Svoboda states to 24 heures.
Coming spring, the forward will be at the end of his four-year deal with the Lions. According to 24 heures, Bertschy was offered another four-year one, but it appears as he valued term over money.
