With three injured forwards, namely Noah Fuss, Jerôme Portmann, and Silvan Wyss, to which Alban Rexha might be added, EHC Olten is looking for some reinforcements in the offensive department. In addition to possibly Rihard Melnalksnis, Marc Grieder, team manager of the Mice, is likely to get a second player via a B-license.
As for Alban Rexha, he could not finish Tuesday's game against EHC Kloten. The center has to be examined for a concussion. The Aargauer Zeitung reports that Rexha walked around with a swollen eye after the game, but otherwise felt good. During the same game, also Cyril Oehen and Esbjörn Fogstad Vold were touched to the head, although apparently in a less severe way.
