Pontus Widerström comes to Zug as forward for the EVZ farm team and as 5. foreigner for the first team.
The 24-year-old Swede grew up in Frölunda's organisation and had a regular place with the four-time Swedish champion last season. He is 190 cm tall and weighs 98 kg and is considered a strong defensive vorward in both running and physical terms with the potential for intimidation.
EVZ sports director Reto Kläy speaks of an ideal solution: "He has been trained in an excellent organisation, has optimal physical conditions and has several years of experience in Sweden's highest league. He also has a good character and is known for his exemplary attitude."
Pontus Widerström will arrive in Zug at the end of July and has signed a contract for the 2018/2019 season. He plays in the Swiss League with the EVZ Academy team and is available as a back-up for the Zug National League team. The EVZ farm team will contest its third season with only one foreigner.
