In defense, Fabian Currit (plays on loan with Red Ice) and Manuel Gossweiler (on loan with Hockey Thurgau) will not receive another deal from Langnau. Furthermore, Adrian Gerber will likely also not get an extension, as Reber confirms.
As for acquiring new defensemen, the Tigers are in ongoing negotiations with Lausanne HC about Federico Lardi. Moreover, as the Berner Zeitung speculates, the ZSC Lions' Cédric Hächler, EHC Biel's Anthony Huguenin or EV Zug's Simon Lüthi might also become of interest to Langnau at some point.
As for the forwards, Jordy Murray, Tom Gerber and Silvan Wyss will have to leave the Tigers at the end of this season. Asked about Claudio Moggi and Sven Lindemann, Reber says that they will probably not receive an offer for the upcoming season. Nils Berger, on the other hand, will likely be offered an extension. Moreover, 18-year-old Stefan Rüegsegger, who has played three games for Langnau this season, might receive a rookie deal.
As for acquiring forwards, the Tigers are supposedly interested in Lausanne HC's Gaëtan Augsburger, but Reber only confirms their interest in Sandro Zangger - though they have yet to talk with him. There are also rumors that Eero Elo has already agreed to terms with the Tigers for the upcoming season. Where the future of Rob Schremp lies, has yet to be decided.Last Update: 10 January 2017, 08:48 AM | mso
