Sotnieks still unsure
Latvian defender Kristaps Sotnieks, who just recently returned from Washington Capitals Development Camp and as of Monday has joined the Dinamo Riga pre-season camp in an interview for icebox.lv states that he is still unsure, where he will play next season.
“Right after the Capitals camp I did not receive any offers. Presumably, I did not manage to strike them with my play, in order to receive a contract offer. At this point I am not sure, whether I will go and play in North America. Together with the agent we decided to wait for another week. During that time we will take care of the necessary KHL permissions and begin to train with the club.”
Dinamo Riga general manager Normunds Sejejs confirmed that Sotnieks will be in the camp, but also he was unable to conclude that Sotnieks will play in the KHL next season. “At this points I have nothing to comment on. We are ready to see Sotnieks on the team, all we need to do is make him a qualification offer. Currently we are all waiting for any further updates with the Capitals.”
