According to the Thurgauer Zeitung, Fritsche might be able to stay if his offseason training improves and if the two parties can come to an agreement regarding the financial aspect of the deal. Fritsche's agent is supposedly asking for too much at the moment.
Youngsters Valentin Senn and Justin Salamin are also practicing with the team. Both the defenseman and the forward are part of the HCT Young Lions and are supposed to be slowly introduced to the Swiss League level. Senn already occasionally practiced with the first team this season.
