Aside from the long-term injured Jérémie Kamerzin and John Fritsche (both out for four weeks), also Daniel Vukovic, Cody Almond and Eliot Berthon missed today's practice. However, only Berthon will probably miss the game on Friday against Lugano due to an upper-body injury suffered against HC Ambrì-Piotta last Sunday.

It was rumoured in the last couple of days and now it is confirmed: defender Chris Campoli leaves HC Lugano as of now and joins the Swedish Club HV71 Jonköping for the rest of the season.

After only four victories in the first thirteen games of the season, EHC Visp decided to end their collaboration with head coach Michel Zeiter. In his place, 51yr-old Kim Collins takes over.

After they released their current Top Scorer Robbie Earl, the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers have signed the Swedish international Nicklas Danielsson until the end of the season 2014/2015.

Toms Andersons who has received a blow to the head and neck-area last week has been cleared to return to light practice on the ice starting tomorrow. However, he will not be back in HC Thurgau's line-up this Saturday against HC Langenthal. If Andersons is ready to scratch the ice again in next week's game against HCA remains to be seen.
