The Almaguin Spartans are thrilled to announce the signing of Damir Shafeyev from Baltu Ainiai Kaunas. Last season the 2000 born Russian Forward registered 14 goals and 9 assists for 23 points in 20 games at the Lithuania Men’s First Division Level.
Spartans Head Coach Andrejs Savicevs had this to say about the addition of Shafeyev “We are very happy to have Damir joining our club. He has great size, plays a pro style game and is a player we can expect to produce offensively on a nightly basis. He had a strong season in Lithuania last year producing over a point per game and finishing third in team scoring.
Damir will be a strong veteran presence off the ice for our younger players and I will be counting on him to set the example for our younger players and push the intensity in our practice and off ice sessions. I’m really looking forward to working with Damir and helping prepare him to advance to higher level professional opportunities in Europe. I am confident Damir can be an impact player in the GMHL, produce high offensive totals and help us win come playoff time. “
