Mercato EBEL 2015-2016: la situazione aspettando i Foxes

Attendendo i primi movimenti del Bolzano, le altre 11 squadre di EBEL stanno allestendo roster competitivi per la prossima stagione, occupandosi di mercato sin dal mese di maggio. Da segnalare l’intensa attività di Graz e Dornibrn, che si sono assicurati tra i pali rispettivamente il talento danese Dahm e il francese Hardy. Pochi ma mirati acquisti per il campioni del Red Bull Salisburgo: da notare gli americani Ferriero e Connelly, e l’arrivo in qualità di backup dell’ex goalie del Renon Fabian Weinhandl. Il Linz saluta il leader Lebler che va in DEL ma si ripara con i canadesi McLean, DaSilva e Latendresse. L’Innsburck ingaggia l’ex Milano Dave Liffiton e a difesa della gabbia si assicura Andy Chiodo. Mercato casalingo in Repubblica Ceca per l’Orli Znojmo fatta eccezione per Yellow Horn, in arrivo dall’Asia, mentre il Vienna Capitals attinge dalla DEL, da cui ha prelevato quattro giocatori compreso l’ex Bolzano Sharp, ma saluta il talentuoso Focault. Molti i movimenti interni fra le squadre austriache. Il tutto aspettando i primi acquisti del Bolzano, che deve ancora sciogliere il nodo allenatore nel ballotaggio tra Tom Pokel e Pat Curcio. Aspettando nuovi movimenti, riportiamo di seguito gli acquisti e le cessioni delle dodici squadre di EBEL sino ad ora.
