Arrived in Lugano from EHC Kloten at the beginning of the current season, Jesper Peltonen has quickly met the expectations of HC Lugano's team manager Hnat Domenichelli: “Jesper is one of our best players in the defensive phase. He has leadership qualities and will be an important element for our future."

In 44 games this season, the Finn-American defenseman, who holds a Swiss player's license, has scored one goal and put up five assists. The 25-year-old is on the ice for almost 18 minutes per game on average, and has a +11 balance.
