Genève-Servette HC, HC Lugano, or North America? According to Le Matin, the Swedish defenseman Henrik Tömmernes seems to be close to signing with Geneva.

"It looks good," a source close to the Grenats and the negotiations with Tömmernes tells Le Matin. Already at the end of March, reports from Sweden suggested that Tömmernes had decided to join Genève-Servette HC. Nevertheless, the final decision about the new home of the 26-year-old Swedish international, who was the highest-scoring defenseman in the Swedish Hockey League last season, has yet to be made.

Last season, in which Tömmernes was also awarded the "Salming Trophy" as the SHL's defenseman of the year, he put up 47 points (nine goals) in 63 games for Frölunda HC. With Frölunda, he also won this year's Champions Hockey League, but had to accept a defeat in the SHL's playoff semifinals against Brynäs.
