The Opole HK Play Safe Stay Safe program in Opole Poland has two defense positions to fill due to injury.
“We lost a few players over the last few weeks, and we are looking for quality players to get into the lineup.” Said Head Coach Todd White
“As we head into a very busy part of our season, we have filled our forward group with very high quality players. Now we need some guys who can move the puck and help generate in our puck possession system.”
Opole HK currently sits in fourth place with games in hand, while looking to make a championship run.
For those who don’t know, Poland is playing traditional hockey. No restrictions are placed on players. The only change for now is that fans are not allowed in the buildings for games.
“Opole HK players are training in the gym and on the ice every day of the week.” Said Associate Coach Kyle Lambourne
“We have world class training facilities and we are using them to develop world class athletes. Scouting is up, and players are being recognized for their continued development.”
Several players on Opole HK are now being evaluated for their respective National Team programs, while several others with Polish heritage are being watched by the Polish National Team.
Players with Polish roots, can gain citizenship, and have the potential to play for the National Team. Poland is now openly looking for those players who can help get Poland back to the Winter Olympics, and under certain conditions, those with Polish roots can qualify.
Yes. Even though Europe is “closed” to most people, Opole HK can still bring players to Poland with the appropriate documentation. Three players from the United States and Canada arrived last week.
