KH Torun has made their biggest splash of the off-season in adding Ervīns Muštukovs. The veteran Latvian goalie signed a one-year agreement with the club. He has represented Latvia at six international events.
The 38-year-old goalie spent the last two years with HC Poruba in the Chance Liga. Before that, he played worldwide, including in the ECHL and KHL. Though he most often defended in between pipes in the EIHL and Denmark, along with his home country’s top league. His best year came in 2011 when Muštukovs won an EIHL championship and was named netminder of the year. He has represented Latvia at six IIHF events, including the 2010 and 2014 Olympics.
Toruń continues to reshape its roster. As the club committed to not signing Belarusian or Russian players, there were many spots to fill. Last year, Finnish goalie Conrad Mölder was the starting netminder, but it appears the club will not be bringing him back now. Muštukovs will be backed up by Polish goalie Mateusz Studziński.
