SC Reinach’s women’s team has reacted on the injury of their Ukrainian netminder Nataliya Kozachuk, whose contract has been terminated by the end of last year. They have signed the current No. 3 goalie of the Swiss national team, Vanessa Bolinger. She arrives from HC Innerschwyz Future. In addition, Reinach has also signed a new import-player: The 20-year-old Kimberley Lane, a forward and member of the British national team.

Also in Neuchâtel, an injury led to the return of Larissa Friant, who most recently played for Altstadt Olten in the second league. After the injury of Isabella Vuignier and Andrea Brändli’s decision to set her focus on the Elite-Team of Hockey Thurgau, the leaders of Neuchâtel have signed the 23-year-old Friant from Basel, who already played for Neuchâtel from 2013 to 2016.
