Aleksi Peltonen is dependent on the regular intake of medication due to his diabetes. The meds are usually not allowed in hockey. HC Davos did not hand in the form to apply for exemption from the rule in time, hence he was suspended because "the delay could potentially be an administrative violation of the anti-doping rules."
After a long administrative process, Swiss Sport lntegrity, in consultation with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), approved the granting of the subsequently submitted form. Peltonen is thus available to the team again.
