In an interview with the Berner Zeitung, Ebbett explains that there is no timeline for Eric Blum's return: "It could be weeks or months. We don't plan with him for the time being." What is clear is that the defenseman will miss the start of the new season, although he is skating again.
From SC Bern, there will be no pressure on Blum to return as quickly as possible, Ebbett says: "We'll leave the decision up to him. We want him to say when he feels ready again without rushing it."
