Janis Purins for a try-out in Finland

with 3 comments

23-year-old Latvian center forward Janis Purins has joined Finnish Mestis league club Kiekko-Vantaa for a try-out. He spent previous two seasons with Latvian club Metalurgs Liepaja.

If Janis will manage to sign a contract with the club, he will become the third Latvian in the Finnish Mestis next season, as perspective Roberts Jekimovs will spend his second season with Jokipojat and 25-year-old Mihails Koklins has signed a one-year contract with LeKi.

The younger brother of Janis, Gints Purins, is currently also in Finland – he, alongside four other Latvians, already for some time are trying to impress coaches of Finnish Suomi-Sarja league club Hermes.

    • Kā jau minēju iepriekš, Kazahstāna finansiālā ziņā esot salīdzinoši izdevīga.

      Kazahstāna pašlaik izskatās pēc šīs sezonas Francijas – jaunatklāts un pieklājīgi apmaksāts galamērķis. Galu galā, pirms 2009./10. Francijā arī spēlēja gluži retais.

      • Varbūt ir vērts nointervēt brāļus Kukjanus par šo tēmu?
