HC Davos has announced the signing of a goaltender, a defenseman, and a forward. From EV Zug, Luca Hollenstein and Nico Gross will be joining then, as well as Tino Kessler from EHC Biel.

Netminder Hollenstein signed a deal until 2026. The 23-year-old former junior of EHC Chur has been suiting up for Zug's National League squad since 2019, making 56 appearances with them so far. His first Swiss League minutes came two years earlier, with the EVZ Academy.

Defenseman Gross also agreed to a contract over two seasons. A regular on Zug's blue line since his return from the OHL in 2020, the 23-year-old has played 173 games in the National League so far. He, too, spent part of his junior time with a club from the Grisons, in his case EHC St. Moritz.

Last but not least, forward Kessler is returning to Davos on a four-year deal. He joined the organization in 2010 from Prättigau-Herrschaft, made his National League debut in 2014 and left for his current team Biel in 2020. In total, the 27-year-old stands at 379 games for both HCD and EHCB, with 48 goals and 71 assists to his name.
