As rumored, Jakob Lilja has decided to join HC Ambrì-Piotta after terminating his contract with Dynamo Moscow. The 29-year-old Swedish forward has signed a two-year contract with the Biancoblù. This past season, Lilja put up 31 points in 58 KHL games.
For his part, Laurent Dauphin has put his signature on a one-year contract, which contains an option for an additional season. For the 28-year-old Canadian center, it will be the first experience outside North America. Dauphin spent most of his career in the AHL - most recently with the Tucson Roadrunners (41 points in 48 games) - but also played 94 NHL games.
In addition to the two acquisitions, HC Ambrì-Piotta has also confirmed the termination of the collaboration with Filip Chlapík. The Czech, top-scorer of HCAP this season, returns to Czechia due to familiar reasons. He has signed a three-year deal with his former team, HC Sparta Praha.
