With his contract with SC Bern running out at the end of the season, Simon Sterchi had to find a new home: apparently, the 26-year-old is expected to return to HC La Chaux-de-Fonds, for which he played between 2016 and 2018. This season, Sterchi mostly played on loan with EHC Visp, recording nine points in 14 games.
In addition to Sterchi, another former player of HCC might return. Dominic Forget has revealed to Arcinfo that he is open to a return and that his biggest regret is that he did not win any titles with HCC in the lost finals in 2008 and 2009: "Why not come back here to play for this club? [...] Anything is possible. I have the energy and the passion to keep playing at the highest level."
The 40-year-old Swiss-Canadian forward, whose contract with EHC Kloten is set to expire at the end of the season, has scored 16 goals and collected 33 assists in 46 games so far in this championship.
