Massimo Ronchetti announced his decision on Instagram, stating that that was something he had thought about for quite some time now. The defender had already bid his farewells to HC Lugano on Instagram back in March.
Ronchetti made his National League debut with HC Lugano in the 2009-10 season. After stints with HC Ajoie, HC Thurgau, and the SCL Tigers, he returned to his youth team in 2016. This past season, Ronchetti played for Lugano (one assist in ten games) as well as the HCB Ticino Rockets (17 games, 14 points).
