Amur reassigns Sirokovs
After a meager beginning of the season, Kontinental Hockey League club Amur Khabarovsk has reassigned Latvian forward Aleksejs Sirokovs to its farm club – Amur-2 Khabarovsk of the Russian First (third-tier) league.
Sirokovs already missed couple of the previous games, playing in seven out of eleven games this season. So far Sirokovs managed to score a goal and add another assist. Head coach Sergei Svetlov commented that currently Sirokovs is weaker than other Amur center forwards.
Similarly, Martins Cipulis, who also plays for Amur this season, has began it rather unsuccessfully, having only one assists in eight games and a +/- of -6 at the moment.
