The 28-year-old goaltender will play his first season outside of Switzerland.

Janick Schwendener to play in Germany

Janick Schwendener and HC Thurgau agreed to dissolve their agreement in May 2020. The deal would have run through the 2020-21 season. In Germany, he will not count against their import player contingent as he is in possession of German passport.

During the offseason, the SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers allowed him to practice with their team so he could keep in shape until he would find a new team.

Schwendener played the past three seasons for HC Thurgau. In 26 regular-season games, he posted a .917 save percentage.
