National League: League increases the number of foreigners from four to seven

At the board meeting of the Swiss Hockey League on Friday, the club representatives passed the new “Regulations for foreign players in the National League”. It stipulates that from the 2022/23 season up to seven foreigners may be deployed per team. Currently and in the coming season there are still four.

This means that the targeted increase to ten foreigners is off the table, but the local players shouldn’t be interested in this. In a representative survey of the National League stars, 90 percent were against this adjustment.
