Remo Giovannini took a puck to his face in the game against EHC Olten. As Le Nouvelliste reports, the medical staff fears that he might be dealing with a concussion. They have thus decided to keep him out of the game.
HC Sierre will, however, be able to count on HC Fribourg-Gottéron's Connor Hughes. He was supposed to play a game for the Swiss League team this week anyway, but not on the day the Dragons are also playing. "We appreciate the gesture," team manager Christophe Fellay states.
