Switzerland's squad for this year's Deutschland Cup from November 6-8 in Augsburg has been announced. The roster will include a total of 23 players - 14 forwards, 7 defensemen and 2 goaltenders.

The Swiss youngster Auguste Impose of the Remparts De Québec (QMJHL) seems not to suffer from a serious injury and thus might hit the ice again soon.

Marc Rüegg suffered a concussion in September, one of several he had to deal with throughout his career, but this one proved to be one too much. The former NLB defenseman has to hang up his skates.

After not making the New York Rangers' roster at the start of the season, Raphael Diaz was not yet ready to give up his NHL career and wanted to give himself a month in the AHL before deciding further. This time is soon up.
