Biography

Ferdinand Cattini played most of his career for HC Davos in the Swiss National League A, playing for them from 1933-48, although he played for Lausanne in the early 1950s. He competed for Switzerland at the 1936 and 1948 Winter Olympics, and also played for Switzerland at the 1935 World Championships, winning a silver medal. Cattini won 14 Swiss titles (1933-35, 1937-39, 1941-48), and helped HC Davos win the Spengler Cup in 1933, 1936, 1938, and 1941-43. He garnered three World Championship medals, a silver in 1935 and bronzes in 1937 and 1939. He also won six European Championship medals – gold in 1935 and 1939, silver in 1934 and 1937, and bronze in 1933 and 1949.

A forward, Cattini usually played on a line with his brother Hans and Bibi Torriani, often called the “Ni-Sturm” line. The three of them worked together as electricians in Davos for a company owned by their teammate, Albert Geromini. Ferdinand was considered to be the most extroverted of the three linemen, often laughing and in good spirits. Ferdinand Cattini was inducted into the International Ice Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998, alongside his brother.
