The veteran defenseman will return to Lausanne HC's lineup in the CHL game against the Adler Mannheim tonight - and he will stay.

"This story has been blown up out of proportion and too much has been said and written about it," LHC's coach John Fust says to Cyrill Pasche (Sport-Center) about Joël Genazzi's recent sort-of-suspension with the club. "That's all in the past now."

As Fust confirms, Genazzi is going to play tonight: "Joël is back on the team and now it's up to him to show what he can do for us." Moreover, the 33-year-old defender is not going to leave the club. "Joël will play again and finish the season in Lausanne," Fust explains.

For tonight's CHL game, Lausanne HC is going to rest Cory Emmerton, Lukas Frick, and Fabian Heldner. In goal, 17-year-old Loris Uberti is going to make his debut with the pros.
