The responsible cantonal physician has ordered an extension to Lausanne HC's quarantine until January 17 due to more positive Covid-tests on the team. As consequence, the Lions' games against EHC Biel (January 15) and the SCL Tigers (January 17) have been postponed.
SC Bern will also have two additional games rescheduled due to more positive Covid-tests on the team. Officially in quarantine until January 17, they will not be ready to return to play under the SIHF's Return-to-play guidelines. Thus, the games against EHC Biel (January 19) and HC Lugano (January 22) will take place on another date.
