Swiss League

The transfer of the Canadian forward of EHC Winterthur to the HC La Chaux-de-Fonds for the playoffs will not happen.

Anthony Nigro is not allowed to join HCC for the playoffs

The reason is the same as for the other Canadian player of EHC Winterthur, Jared Gomes: the transfer had to be submitted at the latest on February 15, and not today as the SIHF wrongly communicated to the team managers of the two clubs involved.

Loïc Burkhalter , team manager of HC La Chaux-de-Fonds comments the situation: "Despite this incident, we need to move on and focus on Friday's playoff game. Let's hope that the League will be able to question itself in this unfortunate matter for both teams."

Nonetheless, allowed to join the club for the playoffs are Colin Fontana (defenseman, HCB Ticino Rockets), Xeno Büsser (defenseman, GCK Lions) and Anthony Staiger (forward, EHC Winterthur).
