As Klaus Zaugg writes in the Luzerner Zeitung, HC Ambrì-Piotta's team manager Paolo Duca thinks that his topscorer Julius Nättinen should stay with them for another year to further develop. "Of course, everyone says I'm an egoist when I say it would be good for him to stay with us for a second season. But this is how I see it. He has the potential to make his mark in the NHL".
In his first season in Switzerland, Nättinen has recorded 14 points in ten games so far. With his twelve goals, the 23-year-old leads the league in scoring.
