Former Vancouver Canucks Forward Signs in Switzerland


Free agent forward Juho Lammikko has signed a one-year deal with the ZSC Lions of the Swiss League.

Lammikko played 75 games for the Vancouver Canucks this past season, scoring seven goals and eight assists. 

The twenty-six-year-old was acquired from the Florida Panthers in the trade that saw the Canucks send former highly touted prospect, and first-round pick, Olli Juolevi to the Panthers. 

Lammikko was a regular in the Canucks' lineup this past season, averaging 12 minutes of ice time across 75 games. It comes as a surprise that the young forward didn't receive an offer from an NHL team, as he could play a serviceable bottom-six role. 

It remains to be seen if Lammikko will return to North America to continue his professional hockey career in the future.
