According to Emilien Verdon (MySports/La Télé), those four players, in addition to Simon Barbero (HC La Chaux-de-Fonds), Matteo Ritz (HC La Chaux-de-Fonds), Loïc In-Albon (SCL Tigers), Sandro Zangger (HC Lugano) and Dario Trutmann (ZSC Lions), have been bid farewell at the season-end ceremony.

The fate of Sandro Zurkichen (rumored to join HC Lugano, despite a valid contract until 2020) is not yet clear. As Jan Alson tells 24 heures, nothing has been signed yet. They are, on the other hand, in discussions with Petteri Lindbohm about a potential contract extension.

As for Cory Emmerton, Alston confirms that the forward will stay in Lausanne. Marco Maffioletti (La Regione) already reported back in February that Emmerton would stay with the Lions for two more years.

Alston also confirms that Lausanne HC will start the 2019-20 season with five import players. They are currently looking for a winger. While they are observing the Swiss market as well, Alston also stresses that they have some young players who might be integrated into the first team next season.
