Opole HK is very pleased to announce that Forward Nick Coleman is returning for the 2021-2022 season.
The Burks Falls Ontario resident will once again pack his bags and make the trek to Opole Poland to don the number 4 jersey once again.
“I am very happy we are getting Nick to come back this year.” Said Opole HK Owner and General Manager Joseph Kolodziej “He is a great team mate, and all the boys were asking this spring if he was going to return. Nick is really starting to come into his own as a player, and I think this year will open a lot of scouts eyes.”
Coleman who has played Junior A and Junior B in Canada experienced a bit of a “breakout” season in Opole last year. While getting time on the second line and second power play unit, Coleman was able to put up 26 points in 21 games while adjusting to the larger ice surface in Europe.
“I have gotten to see a lot of video of Nick from last season.” Said Opole HK Head Coach Brad Zangs “He has speed that really helps open the ice up for his game in Europe, and nice puck handling skills. If we can get him shooting a little more I think he can be closer to two points a game next year. He should have a large role on our team moving forward, and our returning players will be showing the new players how we are committed to development and winning a championship this season.”
Opole HK in its first year will see four players move on to Professional hockey, and two players move on to play University hockey.
With all games broadcast for scouts, Opole HK is also a path to NCAA hockey in the United States, as two players will attend NCAA programs in 2021-2022.
If you are a player who is looking for opportunity. A player who feels he has been over looked, or may not be getting the breaks he needs to get that next opportunity. Opole HK may be your answer.
Outside of the USHL and Major Junior, no other program in North America offers the training facilities, nutrition and competition level that Opole HK offers.
Playing in the MHL, Poland’s highest level junior league, and the European University Hockey League, Opole HK is the Gold Standard for development and exposure.
