Finnish striker Eero Elo moved to the team of SC Lagenthal, Switzerland’s second-highest league, for this season. Elo’s contract is valid until November.
Elo played 10 matches in the SCL Tigers team in the Swiss Main Series last season, which he moved from Rauma Luko in the middle of last season in December.
Swiss Swisshockeynewsin According to Elo, he earned 20,000 Swiss francs last season, or about 18,500 euros a month. During this period, Elo would earn only 5,000 Swiss francs, or about 4,600 euros a month.
The reason for the drop in pay is that Swiss clubs are currently unable to pay much more to foreign players and players do not have too many options. Serial level switching also has its own effect.
GM of the Biel-Biennen in the Swiss Main Series Martin Steinegger explained to the site that the salaries of new foreign players would fall by 50-70 percent in the coming season.
Last season, Elo played 17 matches with 2 + 3 in Rauma Luko before moving to the ranks of SCL Tigers.
In addition to Luko, he has played in the Ace of Pori and in KHL in the ranks of Sibir Novosibirsk and Avtomobilist Ekaterinburg.
He won the Finnish Championship in Ace in the spring of 2013.
