Four Swiss Players scratched the ice in last night's pre-season round: Reto Berra, Simon Moser and Raphael Diaz had all to accept defeats - only Niederreiter could celebrate a victory.

Three ZSC Lions forwards fell victim to a rough game last night in the Hallenstadion. Ronalds Kenins suffered some bruises and a chipped tooth after a foul by GSHC's Cody Almond. Morris Trachsler (upper-body injury, out for 3 weeks) and Jan Neuenschwander (adductors, out for 1 week) both left the game early. ZSC will presumably call-up Raeto Raffainer and Sven Senteler from the GCK Lions to help out in the upcoming games.

The goaltender Benjamin Conz has extended his contract with HC Fribourg-Gottéron for 3 additional years. He will stay with the Dragons until the end of season 2017/18.

The GCK Lions have filed a protest in last night's 2-3 defeat against HC Red Ice Martigny. They claim that on Red Ice's first goal the puck had not actually crossed the goal line.

According to "Radio Fribourg Sport", HC Fribourg-Gottéron's Sandro Brügger had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher in last night's game against the Kloten Flyers. He suffered torn ankle ligaments and will be out for at least 2 weeks.
