Leonardo Genoni's contract in Switzerland's capital city is still running for one more season, until 2019. Nevertheless, it seems that first strings are already being pulled behind the scenes.

SC Bern wants to keep Genoni beyond 2019 and therefore already tried to extend his contract. However, as the Neue Zürcher Zeitung reported a few days ago, the goaltender is not yet ready to sign an early contract extension deal with the Bears.

According to the Blick, the ZSC Lions have supposedly already put out their feelers, although ZSC's team manager Sven Leuenberger counters: "It's a little early for that. At the moment I'm busy with the ongoing and upcoming season. And, just to be clear, we never participate in any speculations."

Also Genoni's agent Erich Wüthrich explains that it would still be too early and that the end of the season should be awaited first to discuss the future of his client. "I'm sure Genoni will clarify things in time. He does not want a poker game, he just does not like such things, too."

Wüthrich also emphasizes that Genoni feels comfortable in Bern: "It thus cannot be ruled out that he stays. He just does not know yet, he intends to wait a little longer and will probably involve his family in this decision."

Genoni joined the Bears in 2016 from HC Davos. In 24 games for SCB this season so far, he has posted a .930 save percentage.
