"It is no secret that we need a player capable of being a regular goalscorer alongside Antti Suomela", Lausanne HC's team manager John Fust tells 24 heures. "That is what I am looking for at the moment."
With the injury to Connor Hughes - depending on how long he will be absent -, an import netminder is also being considered. "I am trying to improve the team where I can. Of course, it has to fit into the budget, but we're going to do what is necessary to stay competitive and get the team back into a good phase."
For the time being, Kevin Pasche has been recalled from HCV Martigny to help out in net.
As Blick notes, Hughes was not in practice today and will not suit up for at least tomorrow's game versus Genève-Servette HC.
Last but not least, Fust also mentioned to 24 heures that head coach Geoff Ward is not in any immediate danger.
