National League

As the Tages-Anzeiger reports, former ZSC Lions coach Bob Hartley is also a candidate for HC Fribourg-Gottéron's head coaching job. Overall, there are apparently three main candidates.

Yesterday, the Dragons announced that their current head coach Gerd Zenhäusern would work as their new 'Head of Development' as of October 1. Therefore, they have to find a new coach. On this occasion, the Blick already reported that another former ZSC coach, Larry Huras, would return to Switzerland and become Zenhäusern's successor.

Now, apparently, there seems to be another candidate. However, Bob Hartley, who worked for the ZSC Lions in the 2011-12 season, still has a valid contract with the NHL's Calgary Flames even though he was laid off at the end of last season. Thus, the 56-year-old's contract would first have to be dissolved.
