Lauris Darzins (#90) scores the first goal of the night and his first in more than four months. Injuries have kept him off the ice for December and most of January. Traktor Chelyabinsk terminated his contract to free the “foreigner spot” he had. Even without a club he was called up to the national team of Latvia. He signed with Dinamo Riga on January, 8th (he played there from 2008 to 2011).
That makes him the 9th (!) Dinamo Riga player who will go to Sochi.
