Sami Vatanen will be away from the rinks for the next 12 weeks. Finnish defender Ge/Servette was successfully operated on Wednesday morning for his lower body injury suffered last Friday during the Eagles’ victory against Zurich (3-2). The 31-year-old has scored one goal and seven assists in nine games in National League this season.
The garnet club, through the voice of its sporting director Marc Gautschi, confided to scanning the transfer market to find a replacement for the Finnish rear. However, he does not intend to panic, given the Eagles’ excellent start to the championship.
Ge/Servette further announced the absence of Marco Miranda for the weekend matches (in Bern on Friday, reception of Kloten on Saturday). The state of health of the Swiss international striker will be assessed on a daily basis by the Geneva medical staff.
