As it can be read in Le Nouvelliste, HC Sion, the current leader of the Romand group does not exclude the possibility of becoming a farm team in the NLB as of next season. There are rumors that Sion has already contacted at least three NLA teams, however just in informal talks, says president Gerald Bressou.
