    How rare is to see MHL B alumni getting an NHL contract? Crazy.

    There is always Sprukts, who was released by a Danish league team just to make his way to the NHL in a couple of years.. :D

    Sprukts did produced 12 points in 15 games for Odense. I thought it was because of lack of finances.
    Alexander Macijevskis played for Odense and was most likely the cause Spruks came over to the club in the first place.

    But this article supports you are right :laugh:

    Quote: "spilleren som OIK ikke var interesseret i at forlænge med."
    Translation: "the player that Odense ishockey Klub wasn't interested in prolonging [the contract] with".

    "Good" job Odense :shakehead

    But it is not the worst a danish club has done in sports:
    Brøndby said no to Luka Modric twice! :help:
    In 2003 a 100.000 Euro offer from his agent to several Danish superliga clubs (!!) and again in 2005 to Brøndby for 1,25 mil Euro. They felt he was to small and not good enough :laugh:
    In 2008 he was sold for 20 mil Euro to Tottenham and went on to Real Madrid.

    Hvidovre now has two Latvians on the roster - though they have chosen to play for respectively Danish and Swedish youth NT's.
    17 year old Victor Cubars, son of Sergejs Cubars [only Hvidovre player to have his number retired].
    20 year old Edgars Treijs, who put up good numbers in the Swedish SuperElit (J20) last two years.
    Roster so far:
    Hvidovre Fighters at eliteprospects.com

    Hvidovre had its best years when Leonids Tambijevs and Andrejs Ignatovics played there in the middle to late 90's.
    4th place in 1995/96, where Leonids Tambijevs became Danish League Player of the Year and scored the most goals (61). That was 21 goals more than Petri Skriko, who was a former 4-times 30 (+) goalscorer in NHL.

    Raivis Ansons moves to QMJHL club Baie-Comeau Drakkar. Hope he has a descent season and gets drafted.

    Both Dans Locmelis and Sandis Vilmanis look like great 2004 players on Luleå's U16 team.

    30 goals and 34 assists for 64 points in 23 games for Vilmanis
    34 goals and 28 assists for 62 points in 24 games for Locmelis

    Next highest scorer has 47 points

    You wonder why they didn’t play up if they were crushing it like that.
