Robert Nilsson has been out of the ZSC Lions' lineup for almost two months due to a back contusion. There is still no timeline on this return.

"I don't know when I will be playing again," the 33-year-old says to the Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Practice on the ice is still out of the question. The pain radiates from the back to the lower-body. "His back is blocked," team doctor Gery Büsser explains and adds that they are doing what they can. It is still open when Nilsson will be able to return to the ice.

In addition to Nilsson there are five more players where patience is the only solution: Severin Blindenbacher, Roger Karrer, Mattias Sjögren, Lauri Korpikoski, and Drew Shore. All are suffering from concussions. "There are four to nine concussions in a season," Gery Büsser explains to the Neue Zürcher Zeitung. "We are now at seven, that's still within the lines - but at the upper end."
