EHC Winterthur has announced the signings of Nico Lehmann and Ruslan Shamsutdinov. The former joins from HC Thurgau, the latter from the VHL's AKM Tula Region.

Shamsutdinov, a Swiss-Russian dual citizen, spent most of his junior years in Switzerland, left for Russia in 2018, only to return a year later and play for EHC Kloten's U20. He then went back to his other home country again for some time. At least the coming season, the 22-year-old will suit up here again.

Nico Lehmann already made a few games for Winterthur earlier in his career, on loan from Kloten in 2021. Now, after a three-season stint with Thurgau, the 23-year-old is back, on an actual contract this time.
