National League

Given the many postponed games the National League had to deal with this season, the end of the season might be later than anticipated.

Postponed games and their implication: National League hockey in June?

According to 24 heures, apart from thinking about scheduling games in the international break (February 8-14), they are also considering postponing the end of the season by one week, until May 18.

They apparently would also be willing to extend the season beyond this date and play games during the World Championship. This would, however, require some negotiations.

Lausanne HC, for example, would be willing to play until June, as Sacha Weibel tells 24 heures. HC Fribourg-Gottéron's CEO Raphaël Berger, on the other hand, is less convinced: "Hockey in June is already not that appealing to begin with. And then to play it in empty arenas... I am not convinced."
