As "Le Matin" reports, HC Red Ice has extended the temporary contract with Patrick Faic for another month, until the end of November. The 23yr-old has joined them in early October.

Good news for Fribourg-Gottéron: Their forward Tristan Vauclair, who suffered a light concussion, is back in practice without wearing the distinctive shirt. Furthermore, also Andrej Bykov skated with his team-mates for the first time in a month. However, he returned to the locker room after half an hour and is still not able to participate fully.

Jan Cadieux's contract with HC Fribourg-Gottéron was not extended at the end of last season. Nevertheless, HCFG wants to broaden their squad and invited the old acquaintance to a try-out.

Fribourg-Gottéron's forward Killian Mottet will return to the club for which he played during last year's regular season. The 22yr-old will reinforce HC Ajoie on Thursday against HC Thurgau.

Rumors turn into certainty: As HC Lugano has confirmed, defenseman Alessandro Chiesa will return from EV Zug to Lugano. They have signed the 26yr-old to a 4-year contract until 2018.
