National League

Team manager Hnat Domenichelli returned to the market due to injuries of import forwards Daniel Carr and Markus Granlund.

While they originally wanted to add a defenseman to the team for the playoffs, the plan now had to change, as the team manager of HC Lugano revealed in yesterday's edition of RSI's "That's Hockey". They had been looking for "one if not two" forwards and now they have found one: John Quenneville.

The 27-year-old Canadian forward had been without a team since the end of the past season, which he spent initially with Leksands IF and then with the Belleville Senators. Quenneville is already familiar with the National League as he played for the ZSC Lions during the 2021-22 season (twenty goals, 17 assists in 46 games).

Additionally, Michael Spacek of HC Ambrì-Piotta has been brought into connection with HC Lugano, but Domenichelli squashed that rumor yesterday: "We didn't issue any offer to him. He is not on our target list and we won't offer him a contract be that for this or next season."
