Drafted by the Arizona Coyotes, the 21-year-old is expected to move overseas. In this case, EHC Biel could play with five import-players.

As EHCB's team manager Martin Steinegger tells the Bieler Tagblatt, he does expect that Moser will play overseas next season: "When an NHL team drafts a 21-year-old, they already have an idea in their mind of what they want to do with him. And for Janis, Arizona is a perfect fit."

If Janis Moser were to leave EHC Biel, they would receive a financial compensation of CHF 250,000 and the right to send five import-players on the ice in every game next season. Until it is clear if Moser will leave them, Steinegger will not become active in the matter, though.

Also, the rumor of a possible addition of Lausanne HC's defenseman Robin Grossmann, 33, is still circulating. "The player and his club must first settle this among themselves," Steinegger tells the Bieler Tagblatt, not denying any interest. "Until then this topic is only speculation."
