The 23-year-old Latvian defender Kristaps Sotnieks, who in July attended Washington Capitals Development Camp and considered continuing his career in North America, has signed a contract with Dinamo Riga, reports club’s homepage.

According to Sotnieks himself, he was waiting for a reply for three weeks, however no one called him and he did not want to wait any longer, so because of that he agreed to the Dinamo offer. The contract is signed for the next two years.

Although Sotnieks plays together with Dinamo Riga already since the beginning of camp, we can consider him as the latest and probably last addition to the team.

Also goalie Edgars Lusins as well as forwards Vitaly Karamnov and Juris Stals have turned their try-out contracts into a proper contracts with the club. Ainars Podzins has signed a two-way contract for the next four seasons. However, he and Martins Jakovlevs must have been reassigned to HK Riga.
