Swiss League

The 21-year-old forward was loaned to EHC Winterthur until the end of the season. However, as the Swiss League team will not qualify for the playoffs, Jobin might play them with another team.

"Discussions are underway for me to join another club, Sierre perhaps, for the playoffs. I really want to finish this season well," Gaëtan Jobin tells La Liberté. HC Sierre is currently in eighth place and has secured the last playoff spot.

As for next season, Jobin already knows that his future will not lie in Fribourg: "My agent let me know [...]. I felt it from the beginning of the season and have come to terms with it, so it's not a shock. I can understand this decision. The points were missing when I had the opportunity to play,"

Jobin is a product of HC Fribourg-Gottéron. He played most of his junior hockey career for the Dragons and returned to the organization after a year in the QMJHL. In 20 games for EHC Winterthur this season, he recorded four goals and four assists.
