After his arrival in Zurich, Guillaume Latendresse had his first practice with the ZSC Lions this morning. As he says in an interview with the "Tages Anzeiger", he's ready to play this weekend.

HC Lugano's defender Chris Campoli won't be able to play the games of the weekend against Kloten and Zug due to problems with the adductors. This hole will be filled by Clarence Kparghai who has fully recuperated and is going to make his debut for Lugano. Furthermore, HC Lugano has to cope without netminder Michael Flückiger - he suffers from a state of exhaustion that prevents him from any physical activity. In these days, there will be extensive tests to discover the causes of his exhaustion.

The 20yr-old Jorden Gähler who was released by the Kloten Flyers has been looking for a new club to play with. Now he joins HC Thurgau for a try-out. For how long remains to be seen.

According to the "Aargauer Zeitung", Tomas Tamfal has to deliver in the next two games, or he will be sacked. Furthermore, old hand Josef Straka's departure seems to be a done deed.

As the "Aargauer Zeitung" reports, there are various Swiss key players on the market who could switch clubs in the upcoming season. Just a few names: Bezina, Bürgler or Hollenstein.
