The Swiss Women's Hockey League A's playoffs are around the corner. For at least the first part of them, the Ladies Lugano will have to make do without their coach Vasco Soldini. He has to undergo an urgent surgical procedure.
Lugano's other coach, Pasi Koppinen, will instead have Christian Augustoni by his side. When not helping out in the SWHL A, Augustoni normally coaches the Lugano-based HC Pregassona Ceresio Red Fox in the men's second league.
