This will also give him the opportunity to showcase his skills once again, as he tells the Bieler Tagblatt: "This week, I have the chance to show what I can do and to convince upper management that maybe they should give me another year."
He says that mentally he is ready to play another year (then as a 40-year-old,) but it will be up to management to decide whether they will offer him another chance. Rytz has appeared in seven games for EHC Biel this season, posting a .892 save percentage.
As for tonight's game, Rytz will have the support of the Seelanders' import defenseman. According to the Journal du Jura, Alexander Yakovenko has recovered from his Covid-19 infection and will be in the lineup.
