Smailes Goldie Hull Pirates are excited to announce the signing of #96 Oleg Sislnnikov.
Last year, Latvian born Olegs played for Ritten / Renon in the AlpsHL where he amassed 40 points in 44 games in the regular season and 4 points in the 8 game playoffs. He shoots right but is an LW.
Aged only 22, Oleg is an exciting prospect for the Pirates with a proven track record even at such a tender age. Having won Latvian League Best Forward 2016/17, Olegs moved from Latvian side, HS Rigato, to Kitbuheler in Austria and scored a very credible 50 points in 40 games. He moved to Italy last season and made a major contribution to Ritten / Renon winning the Italian Super Cup and Italian Championship.
Weighing 80kg and standing at 178cm, Oleg will celebrate a birthday soon after his arrival. Have the cakes and cards ready for his 23rd birthday on 18th September.
With just several slots to fill, the Pirates recruitment process is nearing completion but watch out for the finishing touches. There is a backup netminder under consideration, a D-man and perhaps a an elusive dual national category player.
