Club release Mason Webster and Michal Oravec
London Raiders have announced their delight at securing an agreement for the 2016/17 National League season with Czech forward Kamil Kinkor.
But the Lee Valley-based club have also revealed the release of Mason Webster and Michal Oravec.
The 6ft 5in Kinkor was the leading scorer for Streatham during his first season in the UK, finishing with 59 points from 35 games.
And he will link up with Raiders boasting junior international coaching experience, which he will be putting to use alongside Alan Blyth in the coming campaign.
Club spokesman John Scott said: “At just 25 we are sure Kamil’s evident enthusiasm for the challenge ahead will strengthen the team and will offer other options both on and off the ice.”
Webster asked for his release after winning the Newcomer of the Year award for Raiders last term.
The big forward scored eight goals and 28 assists, despite missing a few matches with injuries, and topped the penalty minutes chart with 166.
“We wish him well for the future and thank him for last year’s efforts,” said a spokesman.
Hard-working Slovakian Oravec has also been released by the club, after finishing with 34 points in 35 league matches.
“The London Raiders wish him well for the future and thank him for last year’s efforts,” said a statement on the club’s facebook page.
