National League

Both defensemen currently are not playing for their respective teams. A loan to another team might thus be an option.

"We are not putting any obstacles in Luca Christen's way and are offering a hand for a loan transfer," EHC Biel's team manager Martin Steinegger tells Klaus Zaugg (Watson). "Does he want to continue training with us and wait for a call-up or a playing opportunity with another club? The decision is up to him."

The same seems to apply to fellow defenseman Mika Henauer. SC Bern's team manager Andrew Ebbett seems to be willing to loan him to another team. Genève-Servette HC's Marc Gautschi even recently confirmed that they had already had a video call with Henauer.

It thus remains to be seen, whether Christen and Henauer will get an opportunity to play for another National League team this season.
