The Rockets fill up their roster

Beat Trudel, Rocco Pezzullo, Karim Del Ponte, Curtis Gass, Joël Neuenschwander and Anthony Neuenschwander are the six prospects in question. American forward Max Gerlach will serve as one of the HCB Ticino Rockets' import players.

Trudel has signed a one-year deal with HC Ambrì-Piotta with an option for an additional season. The same applies to Curtis Gass. Del Ponte has also agreed to a one-year deal. Pezzullo, on the other hand, received contract valid until the end of the 2022-23 season with an option for an additional season. Joël and Anthony Neuenschwander are both still under contract with HCAP until the end of the upcoming season.

Max Gerlach comes off a four-year stint in the WHL (Western Hockey League). He played for the Medicine Hat Tigers and the Saskatoon Blades. The 21-year-old forward put up 42 goals and 32 assists in 68 regular-season games for the Blades last season.
