Volume 3 of promotions and relegation’s makes a stop in Switzerland.
Remember when Auston Matthews ripped up the league?
Also, full disclosure, I love HC Davos.
Former NHL beauties Kevin Klein and Lauri Korpikoski led the 7th place Zürcher SC (ZSC) Lions to an NLA championship last season.
Kevin Poulin played like he had a massive Olympic hangover for EHC Kloten and I don’t want to say he was the main reason they couldn’t hold their own, but boy he was mediocre. Relegated: EHC Kloten
SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers stomped on the NLB. Despite playing on 10 teams in three years, Jeremy Morin was nasty and a huge reason the Lakers got promoted to the NLA.
EHC Dübendorf won the SRL Liga and looks to be on a very similar scale to bottom end NLB teams, but due to financials they will not be getting promoted this season.
HC Université Neuchâtel was the league kicking bag, only scoring 78 goals in the entire season. Time to go back to school….. or the 1. Amateur Regio League.
