History[edit]

Jason Spezza played for the Lakers during the NHL lockout in 2012–13.

The Lakers were founded in 1945 and were known as SC Rapperswil-Jona until 2005, when the club changed its name to Rapperswil-Jona Lakers and then again changed their name to SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers in 2015.[1] They play their home games at Diners Club Arena.

Ex-NHL player Doug Gilmour skated for them during the NHL lockout-shortened season in 1994.

They had survived relegation in every NLA season since last making the playoffs in 2007-08 until 2014-15 when they were swept by the SCL Tigers in the promotion/relegation round. They will play in National League B for the 2015–16 season.
