According to Klaus Zaugg (Watson), Christian Djoos and Niklas Hansson have both agreed to three-year deals with EV Zug. Furthermore, Carl Klingberg will supposedly extend his deal by two years.

Hansson's deal had been more or less confirmed by the Swedish newspaper Expressen. They reported at the end of March that several independent sources had confirmed to them that the two parties had reached an agreement and that the deal would be announced at the end of the season.

As for Christian Djoos, Le Matin reported back in April that the Bulls were in talks with the Detroit Red Wings defenseman. In an interview with Zentralplus (also published today), team manager Reto Kläy, however, only admits that Djoos is a "valid candidate on an ever-shrinking list."

As for Carl Klingberg, the Swede already told the Luzerner Zeitung a while ago that he would like to stay in Zug. As Kläy tells Zentralplus, both parties want to continue their working relationship.

Kläy also states that he would like to start the season with five import players. For now, he is still waiting for Jan Kovář's decision regarding his future. Zug will know at the end of May whether the Czech wants to make use of his out clause. However, up to know "he has not given me any indication that anything might be moving."
