The HK Riga training camp began already on very beginning of July and only now the newly-established Dinamo Riga farm club head coach Leonids Tambijevs has made the first cuts.

The released players are goalie Rihards Cimermanis, defenders Andrejs Smirnovs and Edvards Zarins, as well as forwards Rudolfs Prusis, Lauris Rancevs, Janis Berzins, Janis Zarins, Ivans Dmitrijevs, Edgars Bebris, Rinalds Rautensilds, Deniss Baskatovs and Mikus Ozols.

As of this moment the team has left with 29 players, of whom four are goaltenders. Still, most likely several players will join the team, when released from the Dinamo Riga training camp.

It has also been announced that HK Riga will play seven exhibition games before the start of the season:
