Goaltender Boltshauser spent his junior years in the organization of the ZSC/GCK Lions and later with Färjestad BK in Sweden. In his last season (2013-2014) with them, he was mostly playing on loan for VIK Västerås HK, where he made two appearances in the Allsvenskan, Sweden's second league. After that, he returned to the Lions for one year, suiting up twelve times for ZSC and 14 times for GCK. Then he signed with EHC Kloten and played for them and their partner team, EHC Winterthur, for the last three seasons, eventually replacing the retired Martin Gerber as starting netminder. The 24-year-old was also part of Team Switzerland at the Spengler Cup last December, where he played one game.

"I am looking forward to joining Lausanne, where a new challenge awaits. I think we can accomplish nice things", Boltshauser said.

Forward Leone has been with Kloten his whole career, the only other team he ever played with is EHC Olten, where he suited up seven times on loan. After his NLA-debut in the 2012-2013 season, he played 271 games in six seasons for Kloten, recording 23 goals and 23 assists.

"Lausanne is a very good team with good players. They are building something big and I am honored to be a part of it", the 25-year-old says.
