As Lian Bichsel tells Expressen, he is in contact with the SIHF regarding possible participation in the 2024 World Juniors: "They obviously want me to play and I would love to play for the national team. But I have signed for Rögle and came here for a reason. It will be a tough decision to make". The final decision is expected to be communicated within the coming week.

Bichsel began the season in the AHL with the Texas Stars, the partner team of the Dallas Stars but recently decided to continue his development in Sweden with Rögle BK. About the decision to return to Europe, the 19-year-old defender revealed that he had options from Switzerland, Finland, and Sweden.
