The EC-KAC and HC Innsbruck met in round two of the current bet-at-home ICE Hockey League season, the red jackets won 6-2 on their own ice on September 18, 2021. However, the encounter was much more even than the result would suggest, the sharks were at eye level in the first two sections of an opponent. In total, Die Haie spent 46.3 percent of their time in this game with target possession in the offensive zone – the highest figure for a KAC opponent in the current game year. The decisive players for the Klagenfurt team in this encounter were Nick Petersen, who posted a hat trick (8th, 57th and 59th), and Clemens Unterweger, who won the game with a plus / minus rating of +3 and a Corsi-For-Percentage of 73.2 percent (30:11 attempts to shoot while standing on the ice) ended.

At the EC-KAC, all squad players are still operational, so it can be assumed that the 22-man squad WILL be made up of exactly those players, like the one in the 2-0 home defeat against Vienna on Friday. Dennis Sticha, who came against the Capitals as the 13th striker only to a very limited ice age, will play in the home game of the AHL team against his home club Feldkirch on Saturday in order to get additional match practice. The lineup of red jackets in the duel with Innsbruck will include 50.25 cadre points for the third time in a row.
