With stops, starts, delays, infections, and testing taking the headlines of junior hockey in North America, the Opole HK Play Safe Stay Safe program keeps playing and training without interruption.
Currently in fourth place, Opole HK is adding some fire power to the front lines this week.
Canadian Forward Gavin Fleck has arrived in Opole and is preparing to let his high scoring game flourish on the big ice surfaces in Poland. The 2001 birth year player put up 32 points in 42 KIJHL games in the 2019-2020 season, and an additional 3 points in 6 playoff games. The larger ice surface is sure to allow his speed to be used to his advantage.
American Forward Stoshie Skorulski has arrived in Opole after coming out of retirement. The highly skilled goal scorer, once on the NHL radar has arrived in Opole from Alaska, and will be in the lineup moving forward. Skorulski brings his Polish heritage, and more than a point a night career average point production to Poland looking for a spot on the Polish National Team.
Canadian Forward and penalty kill specialist Cole Sykes has also arrived in Opole looking to take advantage of his skating ability to gain attention of scouts. The 2001 birth year forward will look to reignite his scoring skills while playing a critical special teams role for Opole HK.
These three North American players have joined the growing list of North American skaters arriving in Opole Poland where the government has assured teams that games will be played and training will continue without fans in attendance.
Opole HK is still currently looking for two Defensemen. Once these positions are filled, the roster will be complete.
Yes. Even though Europe is “closed” to most people, Opole HK can still bring players to Poland with the appropriate documentation. For more information on Opole HK please contact Head Coach Todd White firstname.lastname@example.org
