In view of their playoff quarterfinal series against HC Thurgau, EHC Visp has signed two North American forwards.

Chris Dodero, 26, was released yesterday from his former club, the HK Olimpija Ljubljana. Provided that the work permit is received in time, the US-American will be available for the start of the playoffs on February 14. This season, his first outside North America, Dodero scored ten goals and collected 20 assists in the ICEHL.

For his part, Brayden Burke joins EHC Visp from the Manitoba Moose. The Canadian 26-year-old has been playing in the AHL since 2018 when he shifted from junior to professional hockey. In ten games with the Moose, Burke recorded six points. He too will be available after undergoing physical and medical testing and receiving a work permit.
