In 32 games with EHC Visp this season, the 19-year-old has been able to score three goals and twelve assists and is now at the disposal of SCB head coach Guy Boucher in case of any injuries during the final stages of the regular season and the playoffs.

As for center Christoph Bertschy, who sustained a hip injury during Wednesday's cup final, the club wants to inform on his status today. While Boucher had talked about a season-ending injury just after the game, according to the same source, such a long absence of the 20-year-old might not be necessary. (lcu)
