here's the link (in German):

Quick translation: Max Pacioretty signed with Ambri Piotta in Switzerland. It's not announced yet when he'll land and start playing. Quickly recapping his career stats and that he's playing in Montréal with fellow Swiss citizen Yannick Weber (who is now playing for Servette Geneva).

He'll be an interesting addition to Swiss hockey. There's no real "power forwards" over here and hockey is not that physical but more technical. So it'll be interesting to see how he'll do.

BTW Thornton and Nash had their debut on Friday and each had 4 pts

Good for MaxPac. He's really blossomed into a good power forward, and being relatively young, could have some great seasons ahead of him. Hopefully the Swiss game can help him keep sharp!
