Dinamo Riga takes another step for a powerful team for the upcoming KHL season. It all started with Canadian Colton Gillies, who is already in his fourth season with the Latvians. With Gillies, after all 1st round draft in 2007, could hold another important position for the attacking game of Riga. The 30-year-old Canadian suffered a long injury last season, only 5 points (1G / 4A). Nevertheless, the club’s leadership of Dinamo Roga stuck to Gillies, appreciating the qualities of the forwards.

Another important position could be occupied in the defense Nerijus Alisauskas. The 28-year-old Lithuanian international will go into his third KHL season for Dinamo Riga. Last season, Alisauskas scored 8 points (2G / 6A) in 48 games. For the Lithuanian national team Alisauskas played in the past season a total of 9 games, including the World Championship of Div IA in Kazakhstan.
