Ahead of the final part of the regular season, HC Lugano might welcome back forward Lorenzo Canonica and defender Samuel Guerra. Canonica has been sidelined since the beginning of October due to a wrist injury, while Guerra missed the last four games of the Bianconeri. Lugano will face EV Zug this Saturday and then will not play until next Friday.
Next in line for a comeback is Marco Müller, who has also been missing since October. Niklas Schlegel too could return in time for the beginning of the post-season. He sustained a lower-body injury three weeks ago. Finally, Markus Granlund is also recovering positively and could return to the ice if HC Lugano manages to advance in the playoffs.
