NÝDEK Hockey team Nýdku, which will defend the title in the Silesian hockey league (SHL) entered the season with several novelties.
The first are three new faces in the cabin: Radek Mendrok, otherwise the footballer of the order Or, Igor Lysek, who has had knee surgery and Marian Worek. “We didn’t want to join the team or interfere too much, because last year we had a great group,” said playing club chairman Thomas Suszka. The fourth newcomer in the cadre is Erik Palkovský. “The rules of the competition are such that the previously registered players must be ten years inactive. This year still, Erik doesn’t join will be able to play until next season,“ he explained.
Hockey club of Nýdku originated four years ago. Bore the name of HC Nýdek 2015. It is no longer valid. Has a new logo, new uniforms and a new name: Village ice hockey club (VHK) Knights of the Nýdek.
“We wanted to make a new name and logo were tied with Nýdkem. With our communities binds the reputation of the knight trail and about knights sleeping in Čantoryji, hence our new logo depicts a knight Čantora with his retinue,“ described by Suszka.
Another novelty are the new web site. On the site supporters nýdeckých hockey players will find news, photo coverage of matches, news and interviews.
In the Silesian hockey league, which changed over to the new game format, the Knights will be defending last year’s championship. Again under the guidance of an experienced coach George Marsína. “Perhaps as the only ones we have a coach with the license. Help him a masseur, and curator. To training we meet once a week. We’re not going to play hockey, but a bit of practice. Like last time, we’re fifty minutes skating with the puck and without it,“ revealed Suszka.
And perhaps even hard workouts made the Knights so far been looking in vain for a competitor. In so far played matches they wiped Eagles west Virginia 11:2, the Warriors Třinec 10:0, HC Maple 13:3 and the Top Dry outshot 9:6.
