From December 13 to 17, the Swiss women's national team will participate in the Five Nations tournament in Ängelholm. Head coach Colin Muller has called up 22 players, including two new faces, for the trip to Sweden.
The two new faces are forwards Laura Desboeufs from HC Ladies Lugano and EV Bomo Thun's Cindy Joray. Desboeufs' Lugano-teammate Lena-Marie Lutz will not be able to join due to injury.
Most of the players engaged in North America are going to be part of the squad, only Sarah Forster is unavailable due to Premier Hockey Federation's schedule.
"It's always good when we can have a get-together with the best national players", head coach Muller mentions. "Nevertheless, we also have two national team rookies in the squad this time. We are constantly looking for possible successors for the retired national team players."
