As HC Fribourg-Gottéron has now announced, the defenseman will return to Switzerland in summer to play for them for the next two years.

"We believe in his enormous potential and are delighted that he has chosen Fribourg. We will do everything we can to shape Maximilian into a top National League defenseman."
