"He won't play again this season," Del Curto confirms to journalist Klaus Zaugg (Aargauer Zeitung). Axelsson underwent another knee surgery at the beginning of December, after he already had to undergo surgery in Spring this year. Originally, he was projected to be out for another five weeks, now it seems that his recovery will take longer than that.

That HC Davos will sign another import-player to replace Dick Axelsson is out of the question for Arno del Curto: "We don't have money for additional import-players," he says to the same source.
