The Hockey Club Lugano informs to have called back in Ticino immediatly and until 10th January Riccardo Sartori, on loan during this season to the RoKi Hockey Rovaniemi, team that plays in the Finnish second division. The 23 years old defenseman has played 18 games with them.
If the transfer will be completed in time, Sartori should be playing tomorrow evening in the Championship match against Geneva.
Sartori's comeback was necessary due to many injuries in defense (Wellinger, Ulmer and even Furrer had to leave the ice early in the first period) and to the likely call of Elia Riva with the U20 Swiss selection for the World Championship in Buffalo between Christmas and New Year's Eve.
If Elia will play for Christian Wohlwend's team, he will have to leave already on 12th December to play the preparation games.
