SCL Tigers' 32yr-old Slovakian right wing Juraj Kolnik, who suffered a back injury during the training camp at the end of August, has resumed the on-the-ice practice and is expected to make his regular season debut in the Tigers' jersey after the international break.

In tonight's away game in Geneva, the ZSC Lions have to cope without their main goaltender Lukas Flüeler (ill). He will be replaced by GCK's 18yr-old Melvin Nyffeler as starting goalie, alongside Daniel Guntern (18).

According to the „Berner Zeitung“, former SCL Tigers coach Alex Reinhard is suing the club for payment of salary based on a contract until 2015. Reinhard had to leave the Tigers last spring.

As the "Tribune de Genève" reports, Yannick Weber is not the only Swiss playing overseas that HC Genève-Servette would like to sign. The club also shows interest in Robert Mayer.

According to "L'Impartial", HC La Chaux-de-Fonds might have to do without three of their players tonight against the GCK Lions. Arnaud Jacquet (pain in the upper back after receiving a hit on Saturday) and Valentin Borlat, who will undergo an MRI today after blocking a shot in practice, are both doubtful for tonight. Timothy Kast is suffering from adductor problems but might still be able to scratch the ice tonight.Still out as well are Raphaël Erb and Pierrick Pivron.
