"I made him an offer several weeks ago, but he still wants to try his luck in the highest league," team manager Loïc Burkhalter tells Arcinfo, adding that he usually gets contacted by NL teams who are interested in his players, but that was not the case for Andersons. "It is not difficult to guess which club it is."
It thus looks like Toms Andersons will hit the ice for HC Ajoie next season. HC La Chaux-de-Fonds will also have to deal with the departure of another member of the organization: Isabelle Augsburger has stepped down from her position as a member of the board of directors.
As she tells the newspaper, she and president Olivier Calame had different views on how the club should be managed and that's why she decided to take her leave. "I've been attending the team's matches since I was six years old and I'm not going to stop supporting it," she says. "I'm leaving reluctantly. I have enjoyed working with the club's staff."
