Cinks released from HK Riga
HK Riga, the farm club of the Kontinental Hockey League’s Dinamo Riga, has announced that it has released 20-year-old Latvian forward Ronalds Cinks from the MHL club.
According to the official statement, he did not meet the expectations and both the coaching staff and Cinks himself agreed on breaking the contract. Unofficial sources, however, have been informing that Cinks was punished for disregarding the disciplinary terms of HK Riga.
In a short conversation with sportacentrs.com Cinks commented: “That is not true, I was not released for disciplinary violations. During the next few days I will have to sort out, where to practice, in order to maintain my physical form, and as of now I have no idea, where I will pursue my career.”
During the past two seasons Cinks was called up to Dinamo Riga several times and appeared on a total of 20 games, while this season he has played 12 games with HK Riga, posting one goal and adding six assists.
