Vauclair, 31, has played the past five season with the Dragons and has played in 562 NLA games for them and HC Lugano. His new contract will be valid until the end of the 2017-18 season. However, as he tells La Liberté, he has an out clause for the NLA which is valid for the next couple of weeks.

Lakhmatov, 34, on the other hand, has been part of Red Ice since 2013 and has put up 30 goals and 72 assists in 159 games for them. Malgin, 28, is currently in his fifth season with the Martigny-based team and has appeared in 234 games for them. Both of their contracts will run through 2017. (mso)
