"In this very difficult time, Serge has done a great job," HC Lugano's team manager Hnat Domenichelli explains. "However, we are convinced that now is the time to open a new chapter in the history of the club." A new chapter, which will see a new head coach behind their bench. A coach with "a different profile," as Domenichelli says.

While the club confirms that Serge Pelletier has to leave, they have not yet revealed the name of his successor. According to a report from Klaus Zaugg from last week, Lugano's president Vicky Mantegazza and CEO Marco Werder have decided to hire Chris McSorley, who is reportedly going to sign a three-year deal.
