"I'm ready to add another season," Beat Forster says to the Bieler Tagblatt. The 40-year-old is convinced that he is still able to keep up with the intensity, even though he has to manage his energy well and also recover well.

As Forster tells the Journal du Jura, EHC Biel is open for discussions about a contract extension. "So it's interesting for me, because I have time to think." If a new contract will not materialize, however, it would not be the end of the world for him: "I don't have any pressure. All I can say is that, at the moment, I'm still enjoying the game."

Beat Forster is currently in his sixth season with EHC Biel (four goals, seven assists in 39 games). Over the course of his career he has only played for three clubs: EHC Biel, the ZSC Lions, and HC Davos.
