Urban Leimbacher joined the Sharks at the beginning of the season 2012/2013 after playing with EHC Olten for many seasons as well as a short stint with the SCL Tigers in the National League A.

With this extension, the Sharks could man the important position of the starting goalie as desired and continue the collaboration with the 32-year old netminder.
