We are proud of our very talented student Davide Fadani for signing his first pro contract. As already announced before. Here you can see the announcement made by his club, Hockey Club Lugano (translation by google translate):
"Hockey Club Lugano considers the training of young people in its juniors structure and the promotion of the most valid among them in the world of professional hockey a central point of its sports policy.
In keeping this objective, HCL proudly announces today that it has signed a four-year professional contract with the 18-year-old goalkeeper Davide Fadani, born in Milan on 02/03/2001, Italian passport, which is preparing to play his fifth season in the Juniors of the HCL.
In fact, Davide has been wearing the black and white jersey since 2015 (Mini category) and, thanks to his natural talents, his seriousness and the intense work done daily with Paolo Della Bella, Goalie-coach of the juniors sector, he has been profiled in these years among the most interesting "prospects" in his role and in his age category, so much to occupy the 12th rank among the European goalkeepers of the NHL Central Scouting. In his young career, he has also already defended the Italian national team's cage at two U18 World Cups and a U20 World Cup three times.
As in the previous season, Fadani will also this year be the goalkeeper of the HCL U20 team (as renamed by SIHF this year) where it will be joined by another talent of the same age: Thibault Fatton, member of the enlarged squad of the Swiss National Team U18.
Going down on the ice for the fifth consecutive season with the Lugano jersey, Davide will thus acquire the Swiss hockey license and, starting from the 2020/2021 season, he can, therefore, be used in the National League and Swiss League championships as a Swiss player without weighing on the contingent of foreigners.""
