Apparently, the Lakers were able to beat out Djurgården, who were also interested in the Finn. The 35-year-old forward has signed a one-year contract with the Lakers. He returns to Sweden after only one season with HC Ambrì-Piotta.

Pesonen joined the Biancoblù last summer from SHL team Skellefteå AIK. In 57 games for HCAP, he recorded 15 goals and 22 assists.
