The young netminder joins HC Davos from EV Zug, where he is Tobias Stephan's backup. Aeschlimann appeared in six games over the course of the current season, in which he posted a .932 save percentage and a goals against average of 1.83. In addition, he suited up seven times for the Swiss League's EVZ Academy.

Moreover, it is clear that Gilles Senn is going to leave Davos at the end of the season, as HCD's press secretary Markus Glarner confirms to TV Südostschweiz. The contracts of Anders Lindbäck and Joren van Pottelberghe, who currently plays on loan with EHC Kloten, are running out in spring and have not yet been extended.

Although the contract details have yet to be worked out, Senn is keen on trying his luck overseas within the New Jersey Devils organization come season. "I've had a lot of contact with New Jersey," he tells the Blick, adding that several coaching staff members visited Davos in the past weeks and months to meet him and watch him play.

The 22-year-old goaltender was selected in the 5th round as 129th overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. With respect to his upcoming North America adventure, Senn has a good feeling and wants to accept the challenge.
