It looks as if a return to HCAP is likely should Fora not be drafted in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft this summer. If he should be picked and his team will advise him to return to Europe, he is set to make his way back to Switzerland to join HCAP, reports the same source.

The 19-year-old, who has just received his first call to the Swiss national team, has played for the junior teams of GDT Bellinzona and HC Ambrì-Piotta before joining the Kamloops Blazers in the WHL last summer. In 60 games for the Canadian team, he has registered six goals and 26 assists.

In more good news, HC Ambrì-Piotta will soon announce the contract extension with their captain Paolo Duca. Also a former HCAP junior player, Duca has just finished his eighth consecutive season with the Biancoblù, scoring six goals and eight assists in 56 games.(lcu)
