Li Reassigned To USHL

The Saint John Sea Dogs have made their decision – Jurij Siska is in and Nikita Li is out.

The Sea Dogs announced this afternoon that Li has been “reassigned” to the Des Moines Buccaneers of the United States Hockey League (USHL). The move means Siska and Jakub Zboril will be Saint John’s two import players for the season.

Li didn’t look too bad in the action he saw with the Dogs. He appeared in one regular season game – Saint John’s home opener on Friday against Bathurst – and registered one shot and two penalty minutes. In two pre-season games the Russian forward had two assists.

The Sea Dogs selected Li with the 65th overall pick in this summer’s CHL Import Draft.

The Buccaneers open the 2014-15 USHL season on Saturday against the Fargo Force. The Bucs have some sweet promotions coming up this season.

Siska, who missed all of last year with injury, has one assist in three games. Zboril has three assists in four contests.

Saint John’s next game is on Saturday night against Halifax at Harbour Station.
