Medical Report

For tonight's preparatory game against the Ducs de Dijon, HC Ajoie has to cope without James Desmarais who suffers from a groin injury. For that reason, he has not trained with the team since last Thursday. Desmarais' injury is taken seriously: yesterday afternoon, he was examined by a specialist in Basel.

> As "RFJ" reports, James Desmarais has to undergo a surgery on Friday and thus will be out for four to six weeks, until the beginning of the new season.
