NLB - Reto Kobach will leave the Valascia at the end of this season and join NLB team EHC Olten, as La Regione reports. He has agreed to a two-year contract and will thus stay in Olten until the end of the 2016-17 season.

The 34-year-old defenseman is currently in his tenth season with HC Ambrì-Piotta (2002-2006; 2009-now) and has one assist in 41 games for the Biancoblù this season. Kobach, who is a product of EV Zug's organisation, will thus play the first NLB games of his career next season as a member of EHC Olten. (mso)
