Dinamo releases Mikus
Kontinental Hockey League club Dinamo Riga has released Slovakian center forward Juraj Mikus, who joined Dinamo late in September, after failing to make the Spartak Moscow roster due to import quota. Now, however, Mikus is rejoining Spartak.
Juraj Mikus was a part of Spartak’s pre-season camp, however he failed to make the roster, because of the import quota set by the league. Instead, in late September he joined Dinamo Riga. He was signed so that Brock Trotter could play his primary position – left wing, but, unfortunately, Mikus performance wasn’t as good as expected, he was largely disliked by the Dinamo supporters and, finally, was released from the club. Mikus earned 5 (3+2) points in 22 games with Dinamo.
Now, as Spartak already for some time has a new head coach Igors Pavlovs (Milos Riha was fired) and as the club has released Martin Cibak and Jaroslav Obsut, a vacant foreigner place on the team’s roster opened up.
