26-year-old Russian striker Nikita Shcherbak, who previously played for Montreal and Avangard, signed a contract with the Czech Mountfield. This was reported on the official website of the club from Hradec Kralove.
“We are constantly monitoring the player market for possible additions to the roster, including the possibility of trades within the extraleague. There was no suitable opportunity in the Czech Republic, so we chose several foreign players, among whom Nikita was a priority,” said Mountfield general manager Aleš Kmonicek.
This season, Nikita Shcherbakov took part in 25 matches for Banska Bistrica, in which he scored 21 (6+15) points.
