Latvian Legion 2010/11

with 56 comments

This list was last updated in mid-January, 2011.

As some of the European leagues have already started their 2010/11 seasons and many others are on the very verge of it, I believe, it is exactly the right time to post a list of all the Latvian players, spending their upcoming seasons abroad. The current list includes 150 players.

This list is never going to be fully complete and that is why any additions or corrections are welcomed at the comments section.

Twelve players released from HK Riga camp

leave a comment »

The HK Riga training camp began already on very beginning of July and only now the newly-established Dinamo Riga farm club head coach Leonids Tambijevs has made the first cuts.

The released players are goalie Rihards Cimermanis, defenders Andrejs Smirnovs and Edvards Zarins, as well as forwards Rudolfs Prusis, Lauris Rancevs, Janis Berzins, Janis Zarins, Ivans Dmitrijevs, Edgars Bebris, Rinalds Rautensilds, Deniss Baskatovs and Mikus Ozols.

As of this moment the team has left with 29 players, of whom four are goaltenders. Still, most likely several players will join the team, when released from the Dinamo Riga training camp.

It has also been announced that HK Riga will play seven exhibition games before the start of the season:

  • August 7 – Metalurgs Liepaja (in Liepaja)
  • August 15 – Zubry Minsk (Dynamo Minsk MHL team) (in Minsk)
  • August 16 – Zubry Minsk (in Minsk)
  • August 20 – Yunost Minsk MHL team (in Pinki)
  • August 21 – Yunost Minsk MHL team (in Pinki)
  • August 26 – Yunost Minsk MHL team (in Minsk)
  • August 27 – Yunost Minsk MHL team (in Minsk)

Dinamo Riga announces 48 candidates for the MHL team (updated)

Dinamo Riga is getting ready not only for the next season of Kontinental Hockey League, but also MHL, where HK Riga is going to take part in for the first time. Just before the beginning of training camp on June 5, club’s homepage initially announced 46 candidates for the team, but a few days later 2 more players (Jasionis and Ozols) were added to the list.

Both Viktors Jasionis and Mikus Ozols are forwards. While Ozols, being 1991-born, played in Arboga last year, Jasionis played in the Latvian league club Metalurgs Liepaja-2.
