Michael Fora has signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Hurricanes. He might thus also play for their AHL-affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers. The 22-year-old defenseman has made a compelling case for himself in the past IIHF World Championship, where he showed strong performances in the red and white jersey of the Swiss national team.

The homegrown talent has been part of HC Ambrì-Piotta's National League team since 2015-16, when he returned from North America, where he spent one season with the WHL's Kamloops Blazers. Last season, Fora appeared in 53 games for the Biancoblù, in which he put up 28 points (six goals, 22 assists).

While they have lost Michael Fora, HC Ambrì-Piotta can definitely count on Czech forward Dominik Kubalík in the upcoming season. The 22-year-old will stay in Ambrì at least for the 2018-19 season. The forward has agreed to not make use of his NHL out-clause for the upcoming season. In return, the club will not ask for  compensation if Kubalík decides to leave at the end of next season. His contract is valid until the end of the 2019-20 season.
