His contract with the ZSC Lions having run out, Severin Blindenbacher is currently without a team. The 38-year-old has not played a game since suffering a concussion on January 14, 2020. I am still struggling. The light gives me trouble and I also have difficulty concentrating", he is quoted on his former team's website.
Asked about whether this means he is putting an end to his career, Blindenbacher states: "I don't know yet what will happen next. My primary goal is to get properly healthy first and then I will decide."
The veteran defenseman was a member of the Lions from 2005 until 2021, with a two-year break between 2009 and 20011, when he played in Sweden and the US. He won three national championship titles with them. Before Zurich, he suited up for EHC Kloten.
