As the tournament in Visp is held in mid-December, about two months prior to the Olymic games in China, head coach Patrick Fischer might use the home tournament to test some players ahead of this season's highlight.
The Swiss will face Latvia on December 16 and one day later either clash against Russia or Slowakia, depending on the outcomes of the matchups.
