As Le Matin reports, Lausanne HC wanted to thin out their offensive department and tried to send the 31-year-old forward to HC Ajoie. Pedretti, however, reportedly did not want to leave the Vaudoise Aréna and return to his youth club.
Although they currently have (too?) many forwards on their roster, LHC hopes on the return of Théo Rochette from North America, the same source reports. Rochette already signed with Lausanne last summer, but then stayed in North America with the Québec Remparts.
