Having joined the Swiss League team in January, the forward is headed elsewhere again. He has signed a one-year deal in the DEL.

A Finn from Switzerland for the DEL

Teemu Lepaus reinforced EHC Visp for the second half of the season. Starting the season with Liiga's Ässät, the Finn became available on the market after his team was no longer able to reach the playoffs. After this short stint in the Valais, the 29-year-old will move on to his next station, which will be the DEL's Bietigheim Steelers GmbH.

With Visp, Lepaus recorded two goals and four assists in eight games. In the playoffs, he did not get any chance to suit up.

His new team Bietigheim was promoted to the DEL a year ago after winning the DEL2 championship. In their first season, they finished on rank 13 of 15.
