In net, Elvis Merzlikins was back on the ice, but apparently it is uncertain if he will play when HC Lugano faces the ZSC Lions tomorrow since HCB Ticino Rockets' goaltender Silas Matthys was also practicing with the team.
On defense, Stefan Ulmer was able to resume skating after being out due to a knee injury since right before Christmas. He is still questionable for tomorrow as well.
On offence, Julian Walker returned to practice as well, having overcome his minor shoulder injury. However, it is also unlikely that he will suit up on Tuesday. Henrik Haapala, on the other hand, was absent. The Finn apparently left the game prematurely when Lugano played against Genève-Servette HC last Saturday, as the source writes.Last Update: 07 January 2019, 01:25 PM | esi
