According to Arcinfo, HC La Chaux-de-Fonds forward Oliver Achermann is experiencing dizziness after he took a puck to the ear. Defenseman Kevin Kühni is doubtful due to a lower-body injury, which does not seem to be too severe.
HCC will, however, be able to count on EHC Biel's Gilian Kohler again. Just like last season, the forward has his B-license with Chaux-de-Fonds.
HC Thurgau will probably have to play with only one import-player again, as the Thurgauer Zeitung reports. From their three Canadians only Darcy Murphy is good to go. Derek Hulak is still injured (concussion) and Brandon Hagel is waiting on his work permit.
