The 31-year-old forward joined the Seelanders in late October. He had started the season with HC Fribourg-Gottéron, but the team issued an internal suspension to the Canadian for forgetting to take his skates to a game against EV Zug. They subsequently looked to dissolve their agreement with Pouliot.
Martin Steinegger had revealed to the Journal de Jura in mid-February that all five current import players might stay for the upcoming season. It remains to be seen, however, if they sign Mike Lundin to a new contract, as they, of course, have financial limitations.
Furthermore, according to Blick, Biel will start the season with only four import players. This would thus mean that Lundin would definitely not stay with the Seelanders.
In other news, as McNamara tells Journal du Jura's Vincent Criblez in an interview, EHC Biel will also extend the contract of defenseman Cédric Hächler. The 23-year-old joined the team from Zurich at the end of January and has suited up in twelve games for them ever since.
