National League

The Canadian forward, who is in possession of a Swiss players' license, has signed a three-year contract with the Lions.

Back to the roots - Jooris will play in Lausanne.

The 28-year-old is excited to join the team: "The decision to come to Lausanne was an easy one. The culture put in place and the desire to win a championship are two important factors in my opinion. I am excited to have the opportunity to start a new chapter in my hockey career in Lausanne."

During the 1997-98 season, when his father Mark was playing in Lausanne, Josh Jooris skated in the club's junior movement with the Piccolos: "Lausanne was the place where I played my first junior hockey, and I still remember how beautiful the city is."

This season, Jooris recorded 17 points in 87 games with the Toronto Marlies, the AHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Over the course of his career, Jooris played 222 NHL games (55 points) with the Calgary Flames, New York Rangers, Arizona Coyotes, Carolina Hurricanes, and Pittsburgh Penguins and 177 AHL games (49 points).
