As Julien Vauclair explains to Radio RFJ, since the Swiss market is very dry, essentially the only option available to Julien Vauclair to try to lift the team is to add a import player. However, HC Ajoie's team manager is not actively looking for a profile but evaluates all the dossiers he receives every day.
Moreover, Vauclair has also been actively looking for a solution to Noah Patenaude's situation. The goaltender has not played a single minute with HC Ajoie this season yet, because Vauclair does not believe he is ready for the National League. He would like for Patenaude to be able to play more minutes, possibly in the Swiss League.
