Kaminskas also spent 1,805 minutes in the penalty box while representing Raiders and won the EPL Cup in his first spell, before returning to help clinch the English League Division One title and another cup at Rom Valley Way.

He joins Finnish duo Timo Kauhanan and Jani Lehtovaara on the Legends roster, as well as Canadian star Rob Stewart, goalies Alan Blyth and Chris Douglas, defencemen Tari Suwari, Shaun McFadyen, Craig Britton and forwards Rich Tomalin, Stuart Low, Grant Taylor, Jason Buckman, Jamie Randall, Jon Beckett and Scott McKenzie.

The Legends will be coached by Troy Walkington and Erskine Douglas and take on the current Raiders at 5.15pm.
