As anticipated by the "Corriere del Ticino", Raffaele Sannitz will serve as head coach of the Swiss League team whereas Diego Scandella will assist him.

At today's press conference (relayed by "HeShootsHeScoores"), they also announced Daniel Hüni as goaltending coach and Nicola Pini as team manager. 

Furthermore, it has also been confirmed that the SCL Tigers will be one of the Bellinzona Rockets' partner teams. It is not excluded that they will add more partners though. They have had discussions with HC Lugano, but "we haven't reached real negotiations yet. Let's say that we are open to all those who care about player development and young people.”

Regarding shares, 51 percent of the Rockets' shares will be held by GDT and 49 percent by HC Ambrì-Piotta. The roster itself will for now consists of ten to twelve players under contract with the Rockets. Furthermore, 5-6 prospects will join them from HCAP and 4-5 from the Tigers. 

As for the import players, they have not yet made a selection, but the idea would be to let William Hedlund and Jiri Felcman compete with the Rockets. "We have an idea of the prospects we will make available, but these guys will have a chance to showcase themselves in the NL team at the beginning of training camp, so they will be directed to the Rockets only at the appropriate time," Paolo Duca, team manager of HCAP, states.
