Philipp Rytz (photo), 31, arrived in Lausanne from Langnau in summer 2014, and was able to put up two goals and seven assists in a total of 75 games for them since then. Because of a ligament injury which he sustained last October, the defenseman only appeared in 17 NLA-games this season so far.
As for Swiss-American forward Eric Walsky, based on a statement of LHC's team manager Jan Alston, the club and their 31-year-old right winger have agreed on a one-year contract extension until April, 2017. Walsky recorded 18 points (seven goals, eleven assists) this term so far. (rlu)
