Medical Report

While Luca Hischier and Jere Sallinen should play at least one game this weekend, Beat Forster has to isolate himself due to Covid-19.

As a consequence of Forster's positive test result, the whole team of EHC Biel had to be tested for Covid-19, but no further cases were detected, the Bieler Tagblatt writes. Further tests in view of tonight's road game against the ZSC Lions do not seem to be required.

In addition to Forster, who is now in isolation, also forward Luca Cunti might miss tonight's game. Due to problems with his stomach, he was not able to practice yesterday, the same source reports.

On a more positive note, EHC Biel is expecting the comebacks of Luca Hischier, who had been out with a concussion, and Finnish forward Jere Sallinen (hand injury). But they are cautious: "It's likely that they will only play one game [this weekend]," assistant coach Oliver David says.
