What was suggested and pre-announced by 24 heures and La Regione earlier today, has now officially been confirmed by Lausanne HC. Ville Peltonen will indeed be their new head coach as of the 2018-19 season.

Lausanne HC and the 44-year-old Finn have agreed on a two-year contract through to the 2019-20 season. Peltonen, who is currently serving as Kari Jalonen's assistant in Bern, will thus take over from Yves Sauralt behind the Lions' bench at the end of this term.

For SC Bern and their Finnish head coach Kari Jalonen it is a loss, as Jalonen wanted to keep his compatriot Peltonen on his side, the Bears' team manager Alex Chatelain recently revealed to the Berner Zeitung.
