The 49-year-old Finn signed up for two seasons. “From the first discussions with Julien Vauclair (note: the sports director)which I know well, the HCA project convinced me“, Nummelin explained in a statement from the club.”I also had the opportunity to chat with the new head coach Filip Pesan, with whom the current went very well. I look forward to starting this new chapter with HC Ajoie“.

Nummelin’s experience will be a real asset to our team.
