As Klaus Zaugg writes, the 24-year-old Russian forward's creativity - which sometimes leads him to forget about his defensive game - is not really something that matches the system Guy Boucher wants to play with the SC Bern.

It doesn't help that the forward was not as productive as the team had hoped, when they signed him (15 points in 45 games). Reichert seems to be more the head coach's cup of tea and apparently HCAP's team manager Serge Pelletier is also not uninterested in seeing this trade happen.

However, nothing is fixed yet and as was reported earlier, SC Bern is looking at several players right now. Furthermore, as Marco Maffioletti (La Regione) reports, Reichert is not ready to talk about his possible departure from HC Ambrì-Piotta to the capital city: "There are a lot of rumors around. I will not comment on them."
