In memory of great names and unique achievements, the RETIRED NUMBERS are no longer awarded and immortalized as a sign of appreciation with a flag under the stadium roof. In order for a player number to no longer be assigned, 4 of the following five criteria must be met.
The following player numbers are no longer assigned at the EVZ:

The long-time national defender came from Bern to Zug in 1990 and was one of the leading figures in the EVZ defence for over a decade. After his first title with SC Bern in 1989, he won the championship for the second time with EVZ in 1998. In 2001 he had to resign from active sports because of chronic complaints.
17 Seasons with EVZ (2003-2020)
Swiss Champion with EVZ Elite Juniors 2003 and 2004
Vice-Swiss Champion with EVZ 2017 and 2019
Cup Champion with EVZ 2019
Fabian Schnyder joined the EVZ in 1996 from Küssnacht SC. As a junior player, he won two championship titles with the EVZ Elite Juniors (2003 and 2004), and in 2004 he took part in the World Championships in Finland with the Swiss U20 national team. In the 2003/04 season, he made the jump from the elite juniors to the Zug National League team, with which he celebrated the runner-up title in 2017 and 2019 and the Cup victory in 2019. In 17 seasons and 873 championship appearances, he scored 125 goals, 151 assists and 276 scorer points for his EVZ, which he remained loyal to until his retirement. With his exemplary attitude and his above-average running and fighting qualities, the power winger was one of the top performers until the end. Thanks to his open and modest manner, he was also a figurehead and likeable ambassador for the club off the ice.
