The Almaguin Spartans are happy to announce the addition of promising young Latvian Defensemen Kalvis Krievs (2005) from Primza/Paradaugava U17.
Spartans Head Coach Andrejs Savicevs had this to say about the addition of Krievs “We are very happy to have Kalvis joining our program. I was able to watch him at the Pre-Draft Showcase in Lithuania, and David and I were able to meet with him and his family. He did very well at the showcase, competing against much older, more experienced players.
Kalvis is a young player with great potential. He is only 16 years old, but already has great size, hockey sense and willingness to get better everyday. We feel he is going develop a lot in our program over the season and the type of game he plays is suited well for North America. He plays a physical game, competes hard and moves the puck well. I am really looking forward to working with Kalvis and watching him develop into a player that can play at the MHL level in the near future. “
