Lian Bichsel - from the banks of Lake Biel to the banks of Lake Siljan

Leksands IF has just released a list of junior players joining their organization. Among them is a Swiss player, Lian Bichsel. At the end of April, the Bieler Tagblatt reported that the 17-year-old would be leaving EHC Biel and move to Sweden, but a team had not yet been disclosed.

Bichsel spent most of the season with Biel's U20, but also made four appearances for the main squad in the National League. He has also suited up for the U17 and the U18 Swiss national junior teams.
