The 36-year-old had to throw in the towel in Game 1 at the end of the first period. He has been out with an undisclosed injury ever since. Also injured are Julian Payr, Nico Dünner, and Lukas Lhotak.
Nothing new in terms of injuries on HC Lugano's roster. The only absentee is forward Tim Traber, who is dealing with shoulder problems.
