With the start of the championship approaching, HC Lugano wanted to give an update on the health status of their players who were absent in the past few days. Whereas Niklas Schlegel, Daniel Carr, Jeremy Gerber, Arttu Ruotsalainen, and Samuel Guerra have fully recovered, Michael Joly and Bernd Wolf are not ready yet.
Michael Joly underwent medical tests and a specialist examination yesterday for an upper-body problem. The examinations ruled out any injury. His condition will be thus evaluated by the medical staff on a day-to-day basis. For his part, Bernd Wolf suffered a knee injury during the last pre-season game and will be out for several weeks.
