Andrea Odermatt, 21, returns to the shores of lake Zurich after just one season playing with Daito Kaihatsu (Japan) and most recently HC Lugano's Ladies Team, which she joined at the beginning of January. In a total of three regular season and six playoff games with Lugano, the Swiss-Japanese managed to put up two goals and one assist.

Irene Heise, on the other hand, joins the Lionesses from Frauen Bundesliga's Eisbären Juniors Berlin, for which she suited up in a total of 142 games in the past seven seasons (six goals, 25 assists). The 21-year-old is part of the extended roster of the German national team.
