As their fifth import in the offense, HC Lugano has signed Michael Joly from HPK. The 27-year-old Canadian spent the first years of his professional career between the AHL and the ECHL before joining HPK in 2021. Hnat Domenichelli, team manager of HC Lugano, expects energy and speed from the right winger. With five forwards and one goaltender under contract, Lugano is now missing just an import defender.
This past season, Joly scored 25 goals in the Liiga to which he added 39 assists for a total of 64 points, the most by any player in the league this year. For this, he received the award as MVP of the regular season.
