Santala's contract with Kloten was valid until the end of this season. With the team's relegation, it became clear that the Finn would not stay with the team to play in the Swiss League. He will now return to his native country and play for Helsinki.
Santala played ten seasons for EHC Kloten (apart from a short stint in the KHL last season). This year, he recorded nine goals and 20 assists in 34 regular-season games for them.
