Fuel their offense - that is the main goal of the SCL Tigers for the next season, as they scored only 120 goals in 50 regular season games. As a consequence, it seems highly likely that the Tigers will start with four import-forwards into the new season in September.

According to several media reports in the past, Canadian forward Chris DiDomenico, 29, is a candidate. His return seems likely, Der Bund writes. Another candidate seems to be Lausanne HC's Finnish forward Harri Pesonen. After four seasons, the 29-year-old will leave Lausanne, but would like to stay in Switzerland, as he told 24 heures.

The other two imports could be well-known. Eero Elo already has a contract for the 2018-19 season. Also Aaron Gagnon might stay with the Tigers. According to Der Bund, there is a chance that he receives a contract extension thanks to his 20 goals this season.

There will also be a couple of departures, as the same source writes: Defensemen Philippe Seydoux and Martin Stettler, as well as forwards Eric Himelfarb and Lukas Haas will have to leave the club.
