Juhani Tyrväinen confirmed to SportExpressen that SC Bern was interested in and there was some talk but that he did not come close to leaving: "I have always thought that I will stay here. It wasn't that serious."
Tyrväinen just finished his season with Luleå. The SHL team lost the playoff final series against Färjestad BK. In 36 regular-season games, the Finn recorded eleven goals and 19 assists.
