According to the yet unconfirmed information of 24 heures, the 24-year-old's contract with Lausanne HC also includes an out-clause for a one-way deal with an NHL team. The former player of SC Bern could, therefore, also stay in North America given that an NHL team is interested in acquiring his services. His contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning is running out, though.

As the same source wrote a day later, Lausanne HC and Vermin have supposedly agreed on a five-year contract, which would keep the forward in Lausanne until the end of the 2021-22 season.

Vermin was drafted by the Tampa Bay Ligthning in 2013 as 186th overall. He has spent the past three years in North America, mainly playing for Tampa Bay's AHL-affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch. So far, he has appeared in 139 AHL-games (29 goals, 38 assists) and also in 14 games for the Tampa Bay Lightning in the NHL (three assists).
