It was a tough match for KIK, but they won by 3 - 2 after a goal in extra time. In the stand sat their new signing, the 21-year-old forward David Levin.
Born in Tel Aviv in 1999, he is a citizen of both Israel and Canada.
”I was twelve when I moved to Canada alone and started at a hockey school”David Levin
– I've a very good shot, I'm really aggressive, I like playing hard and supporting my teammates.
At home in Israel he played roller-blade hockey, was discovered and ended up in Canada, where his hockey career took off.
– I was twelve when I moved to Canada alone and started at a hockey school, says David.
He was drafted by the OHL-league team Sudbury Wolves.
– It was the first time for an ice-hockey player from Israel to be drafted, he laughs.
Last season he scored 73 points (27 + 46) for Sudbury Wolves in the OHL-league. His latest club was Dinamo Riga.
David Levin has still not got his work permit.
”We need at least one more forward. We have a few who would like to join us, but we'll see what's available”Johan Lindbom
KIK's manager Johan Lindbom points out that he was recruited with external help.
– We can't afford to buy AHL-players, we mustn't do anything risky for the club. 17 businesses are helping us, otherwise we wouldn't have had a chance, says the manager.ITh external support can also cover another player before the transfer window closes on 15th February.
– We need at least one more forward. We have a few who would like to join us, but we'll see what's available, the manager says.
In our latest four matches we've played really well, but we only got two points from them, so maybe we need some fresh blood to speed the team up.
