"I’m thankful for my time in Lausanne. We went through a lot of changes and some tough times that made us stronger. I want to thank the players, my assistant coaches and the staff. Together we made history and played our hearts out for the best fans in this great sports city," the Finn comments to via his agent, Juho Sintonen.

Peltonen's dismissal came as a bit of a surprise to many onlookers, as Lausanne HC had extended his contract in early December for another two seasons. Also, prior to yesterday, the Lions had only needed one point to make it to the playoffs. While they were not able to gain said point yesterday, LHC still qualified for the playoff quarterfinals, as SC Bern only won in overtime.
