Hockey Club Lugano would like to take stock of the situation regarding the injuries sustained by goalkeepers Niklas Schlegel and Davide Fadani.
Niklas Schlegel was injured last night in Zug after three minutes of play. The instrumental examinations he underwent today revealed an injury to the adductor muscles of the left thigh. The recovery period for the return to competition is estimated at 6-8 weeks.
Davide Fadani suffered a sprain of the right knee with meniscus rupture last Saturday in the game played in Visp with the Ticino Rockets. The surgical intervention will be performed in the next days. Also in this case an absence of 6-8 weeks is estimated.
For tomorrow night's game against Ambrì the technical staff will therefore have at its disposal the Canadian Leland Irving, who was on the ice yesterday during the Ticino Rockets' victorious game in Sierre, Thibault Fatton and the U20 Elit extreme defender Gabriel Crivelli.
