EHC Visp has signed forward Tim Lutz from the DEL's Fischtown Pinguins where he was playing for the last two seasons. Prior to that, the 22-year-old Swiss-German dual citizen suited up for HC Davos and the HCB Ticino Rockets.
The Swiss League club also announced extensions for netminders Matteo Ritz and Nelson Schickli, as well as defenseman Finn Fuchs. Schickli suited up for Valais-Wallis Future last season while Fuchs spent over half his time with EHC Thun in the MyHockey League.
The new deals in place are all for one year.
As for Tamás Ortenszky, the defenseman has agreed to terms with the newly-promoted Swiss League team HCV Martigny. He already spent most of last season with them on loan and only made one game for Visp.
