Pettersson's original contract had an option for the 2018-19 season, which the Lions now made use of. Additionally, they extended his deal for another two years. He will thus stay with the Lions until the end of the 2020-21 season.

It was not clear if Niklas Schlegel would stay another season with the Lions. Courted by EHC Kloten, it looked like he would leave the team to get a shot at being a number one goalie there. However, he now decided to stay another season with the Lions. His contract will be valid until the end of the 2018-19 season.
