Medical Report

According to La Liberté, HC Fribourg-Gottéron's Canadian defenseman Alexandre Picard has resumed on-ice practice this week.

The 30-year-old will step by step increase the intensity in the upcoming week. It seems to be clear, however, that he is not going to be ready for their next game against Lausanne HC on February 20, the same source reports.

In contrast to Picard, whose return to game action seems to be forseeable, there is no timeline yet for a return of forward Martin Réway and defenseman Sebastian Schilt. (tme)
