Hugo Gallet made his mark in Liiga, the prestigious Finnish Championship. Under contract since summer 2019 with IPK Iisalmi (Finnish D2), the French defender has already been loaned several times to KalPa Kuopio, the Liiga club to which IPK is affiliated. The player from Amiens (1.92 m, 23 years old) played four matches there last season and 23 this season (0 goal, 4 assists), and his performances convinced KalPa to keep him.
A few days ago, his transfer until the end of the season was formalized in the company of two of his teammates. Gallet, voted best hope in Ligue Magnus in 2018-2019 with Bordeaux, is Liiga’s third Blue this season, with regulars Charles Bertrand (Tappara Tampere) and Yohann Auvitu (Helsinki IFK), injured for several months.
