Opole HK is pleased to announce that Defenseman Piotr Bielaczyc, from Opole Poland is returning to Opole HK for the 2021-2022 season.
Piotr has been playing hockey in Opole and growing up through the community operated Orlik Opole Hokej Klub. Last season Piotr joined Opole HK on a temporary loan basis and was able to get in six games while managing all of his educational commitments.
“Piotr is really a great young man, from a great family.” Said Opole HK Owner and General Manager Joseph Kolodziej “We were lucky to discover him while our players were out working with the Orlik players during practices last season. He has great size, a real active stick and moves very well for someone who is still growing. The rest of the boys on the team really like him, and we are very pleased he is coming back.”
“I got a chance to see Piotr on video, and for a big kid he really skates quite well.” Said Opole HK Head Coach Brad Zangs “We will continue to work with him on tactics, and improving his anticipation. We are expecting him to really grow a lot as a player this year and play a steady role with the team.”
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.
