The forward is only signed until spring, but talks with his agent have been initiated.

Michael Joly seems to have convinced Hnat Domenichelli of his qualities." Now we need to figure out what his intentions are", HC Lugano's team manager tells the Corriere del Ticino. "Does he aim to return to the NHL or does he envision a longer-term future in Switzerland? Our hope is that he wants to stay in Lugano: discussions with his agent have already started and everything remains open."

In 18 games this season, Joly has put up nine goals and eleven assists.

On a more short-term scale, Domenchielli does not currently intend to acquire an additional import to make up for the injuries on his squad. "Together with the management and technical staff, we will evaluate what to do. It would be useless to sign someone just to make up the numbers." They will keep an eye on the situation.
