Yohann Auvitu started the season with Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk in the KHL. His contract was terminated at the end of November. in twenty games for the KHL team this season, he has recorded one goal and two assists.
While GSHC can thus count on a new arrival, two players are not yet ready to make their comeback: Teemu Hartikainen will still be out for two to three weeks. He suffered an upper-body injury in the game against the SCL Tigers shortly before Christmas.
Deniss Smirnovs, for his part, suffered several injuries due to a hit in the same game and will miss another four to five weeks. Sami Vatanen will not be back in the lineup until February.
