Patrick Parati has only been able to play ten games with the Lions this season, as he is currently sidelined by an injury. Still, this did not deter talks between him and HC Thurgau.
The defenseman has been with the Swiss League team since the 2015-16 season. He has also been the captain of the team since 2016. Team manager Gody Kellenberger is thus glad that “such an important part of the team” is staying.
