Devils Add Firepower With Latvian Forward Piskunovs

Latvian forward Sergey Piskunov is the Red Devils second import signing for 2018!

Sergey currently plays for the HS Riga in Latvian Top division. The 25-year-old Centre was highly recommended by ex-Devil import star Vitalijs Hvorostinins who gave him a positive overview of the Red Devils and town, so Piskunov knows exactly what to expect in NZ hockey. In the season 2016-17, they played on the same line in their country’s top league and the Sergey gained an impressive 31 (13+18) points in 30 games, overtaking the past Red Devils import by 7 points.

Red Devils head coach Anatoly Khorozov is equally thrilled to have Piskunov on the roster for the upcoming season: “Sergey will bring experience to our young team having played pro for a while in Europe. He comes highly recommended with an abundance of hockey pedigree. He will be a great addition to the team without any doubts.”
