Swiss League

EV Zug have inked forward Pontus Widerström to a one-year deal. The Swede will play for EVZ Academy and be a backup import for the National League-team.


The 24-year-old is a product of the Frölunda HC-organization. He made his SHL-debut during the 2013-2014 season and suited up for the main team at least several times each season since then (158 games in total). He also played for both Karlskrona HK (eleven games) and IK Oskarshamn (90 games) on loan in the Allsvenskan.

"He was developed by a great organization, has optimal physical conditions and several years of experience in the highest Swedish league", says EVZ-team manager Reto Kläy, and adds that he has a good character.
