Dinamo Riga found two new players with the return of Rudolf Cerveny and the signing of domestic blueliner Karlis Cukste. A third Swedish joins Barys as the Kazakh franchise rebuilds its roster for the 2020-2021 campaign.

Rudolf Cerveny

Signs with Dinamo Riga

After spending the 2019-2020 at home in the Czech Republic, and the last season in Finland, the Czech forward is back in the KHL after playing in 2018-2019 with Slovan Bratislava. The then-28-years-old player was among the top-scorers for his team, as he produced 23 (11+12) points for the Slovak franchise, trailing only Jeff Taffe. Naturally, Rudolf Cerveny will take a high spot on Dinamo Riga’s depth chart and is projected to be part of an international line with Jere Karjalainen and Sebastian Wannstrom.

Olle Alsing

Signs with Barys

Barys is slowly gathering its lineup for the upcoming 2021-2022 campaign, and its new signing is Swedish D-man Olle Alsing. The 25-years-old defenseman played in three leagues last year, starting the season in Austria, then moving on with the Ottawa Senators and their affiliate in the AHL. Alsing had two breakout seasons in 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 at home, emerging as one of the top blueliners in the Swedish SHL. The Kazakh franchise has two other players from the Tre Kronor under contract, with the recently-signed Eric Martensson joining Jakob Lilja — last year’s top-scorer for Barys.

Karlis Cukste

Signs with Dinamo Riga

The Latvian franchise isn’t only looking at international options but is also trying to amass some of the top domestic talent available. After returning veteran forward Martins Karsums, Dinamo Riga has strengthened its blueline lineup with Karlis Cukste. The 23-years-old defenseman left Latvia in 2015, after spending a season with HK Riga of the JHL, and then spent the next six seasons in North America. After one year in the USHL, he then had four seasons in the NCAA, then spent the 2020-2021 campaign within the San Jose Sharks system, who drafted him in 2015. Cukste now has an excellent chance of gathering further experience playing at a high level and being useful for his new side.
