Depending on the outcome of the medical exams Jonathan Hazen underwent, the team manager of HC Ajoie will have to hire someone for the short or long term.

"Depending on what the doctors tell us, we'll hire someone for the short or medium term, or maybe for the whole season," Vauclair tells 20 minutes.

Both options create some problems, as it is difficult to find someone who is willing to play for the team only for a short period of time. On the other hand, Vauclair's budget will take a big hit if he will have to hire another import player for the entire season.

The team physician has already made his diagnosis, but they sent Hazen to two other doctors to get a second and a third opinion. The results are expected to come in soon. After that, Vauclair will know which road he will take.
