National League

The former general manager of the Edmonton Oilers has been signed until the end of the season and will be assisted by John Fust.

Craig MacTavis is the Lions' new head coach

The team will announce the new team manager after the end of the season. Lausanne HC's Board of Directors decided to fire head coach Ville Peltonen and team manager Jan Alston as they were not happy with the results the two delivered.

Assistant coach Tommi Hämälainen is also leaving the club with immediate effect. Cristobal Huet remains the goaltending coach. The future of assistant coach Tommi Niemelä is not yet clear.

Lausanne HC's new head coach Craig MacTavish is probably most known for his ties to the Edmonton Oilers. He served as their head coach from 2000 to 2009 and again as their GM and as their VP of Hockey Operations from 2012 to 2019.

The Canadian was serving as Lokomotov Yaroslavl's head coach this season but was fired after only eight games and a 3-5 losing record.
