As Le Matin reports, EHC Biel has made a contract offer to the Calgary Flames' Swiss goaltender Jonas Hiller. The board of directors has approved this offer. Moreover, they are also talking to Reto Berra's agent.Photo Michael Miller
Even though CEO Daniel Villard does not want to confirm this information, he explains that EHC Biel has indeed been in contact with Hiller's agent. At the same time, they are also talking to Reto Berra's agent.
However, Hiller, who is currently in his second season in Calgary, previously stated that he does not consider a return to Switzerland and wants to stay in North America. The same also applies to Reto Berra, as Le Matin further reports.
Moreover, EHC Biel has also cast an eye on HC Ajoie's goaltender Gauthier Descloux. However, he still has a valid contract with Genève-Servette HC for the upcoming season. As Lukas Meili will indeed have to leave the Seelanders, Melvin Nyffeler, who is leaving the SC Rapperswil-Jonas Lakers, has also been negotiating with EHC Biel. (bsc)
