First of all, Ryan Wilson's one-year contract expired and will very likely not be extended. Consequently, the 30-year-old Canadian defenseman will have to leave Lugano. In addition, still according to the same source, Swedish forward Tony Mårtensson (photo) will not get a new contract in Lugano and will presumably not play a third season for the Bianconeri. As reported by the Aftonbladet in early March, several SHL teams are apparently interested in the 36-year-old forward.
Furthermore, Patrik Zackrisson may part ways with Lugano after just one season despite a valid contract for the 2017-18 season. This could also apply to Linus Klasen, Lugano's third Swedish import forward. Klasen's future, however, is still uncertain. The 31-year-old might still play a fourth season in Lugano.Last Update: 01 April 2017, 03:04 PM | bsc
