"Yes, we are looking at alternatives," HC Thurgau's team manager Gody Kellenberger confirms to the Thurgauer Zeitung. Due to the pandemic there are more quality players available than in other seasons: "And they cost almost nothing," Kellenberger adds.
Nevertheless, HC Thurgau hopes that Derek Hulak will get better soon. "It would be a shame if Derek couldn't continue playing for us. He has made such a good impression." So far, the Canadian forward has only appeared in eight games for the Lions (one goal, one assist).
