In addition to the signings of Mark Arcobello (, until 2023), Raphael Herburger (2022), Aurélien Marti (2021), and Bernd Wolf (2022), HC Lugano has also inked Tim Traber to a contract, which is valid until the end of the 2021-22 season. The 27-year-old suited up for Lausanne HC during the past two seasons.
Moreover, the Bianconeri have signed Timo Haussener to a new two-year deal and extended Loic Vedova's contract for one more season. From their U20, the defensemen Nicolò Ugazzi and Alessandro Villa have signed three-year "Entry Level" contracts.
There are, however, also several departures. In addition to the already known departures of Julien Vauclair (retired), Benoît Jecker (Fribourg), Linus Klasen (, Luleå), and Massimo Ronchetti (?), the Bianconeri will not extend the contracts of Taylor Chorney (), Paul Postma (), Mauro Jörg, David McIntyre () and Johan Ryno ().
