The hangovers are over. The severe setbacks of the two Valais clubs in the Swiss League in the play-off quarter-finals were difficult to digest. Sierre, fourth in the regular season, was swept away by the fifth Olten, while Viège, seventh at the end of the qualifying round, suffered the law of the second Ajoie. The two series ended on the evening of March 23 with the same score: 4-0.
All eyes will now turn to next season. But in Valais, these days, when we talk about ice hockey, it is above all to evoke the project carried by Chris McSorley in particular. The former coach and leader of Genève-Servette HC wants to take Sierre to the top flight by the 2024-2025 season.
