Payday for Swiss junior ice hockey: The 24 PostFinance Top Scorers in the National Leagues A and B have earned 172 700 francs for their clubs’ junior teams during the 2016/2017 qualification round. This year PostFinance has once again doubled this sum and is committing the same amount to the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation to support national junior ice hockey teams. PostFinance will therefore be supporting the Swiss National League clubs' ice hockey juniors and the national team with a total of 345 400 francs this year.
The symbolic presentation of the cheque to the top scorer of the NL A clubs took place this afternoon in Depot B in Berne. Since the 2002/03 season, the PostFinance Top Scorers have been earning money with their goals and assists for Swiss ice hockey juniors: Every goal and every assist is worth 200 francs in the NL A, and 100 francs in the NL B. At the end of the competition, the points scored are converted into cash. The money earned goes to the junior divisions of the relevant clubs.
