The Bianconeri were ousted from the playoffs last night. It was also the last professional game for Alessandro Chiesa.

"This was my last game and this was my last season. I've already decided on that a while ago. I had a fantastic time and I enjoyed every second of it," Chiesa told MySports after the game.

Apparently, he has already lined up his next job. As he told the same source, there will likely be an announcement in a couple of days. Chiesa, who played his first professional games for HC Ambrì-Piotta back in the 2003-04 season, suited up for the Bianconeri for the past eight seasons.

In total, the defenseman played almost 900 National League games for HC Ambrì-Piotta, EV Zug, and HC Lugano. He won one championship with the Bianconeri back in the 2005-06 season.
