The 41-year-old netminder, who just suited up with the French national team for a thirteenth and final time at a World Championship, has one more season to go on his contract with Lausanne HC.

In April next year, however, Huet is expected to call it a career then: "I have physical problems that prevent me from playing with the needed requirements for the high level. We'll see, but there's a 99% chance that I'm going to retire in 2018."

The French-Swiss goaltender, who has been minding the net of LHC since 2012, participated in two Olympic Games (Nagano 1998, Salt Lake City 2002) and 13 World Championships with the French national team. Moreover, Huet won the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010.
