After playing last season in China for the Kunlun Red Star, former Capital Michael Latta is taking his talents to the SHL. Thursday, Expressen’s Johan Svensson reported that Latta has come to an agreement with the Swedish league team Färjestad BK. The team later confirmed the signing.
Färjestad is signing Latta after they dumped Finnish forward Ville Leskinen earlier this week. However, Färjestad general manager Peter Jakobsson noted that Latta would not be acting as a direct replacement. “We’ve been looking to add to our roster for sometime, so he’s not a replacement for Leskinen,” he said, as translated by RMNB’s Magnus Cadelin.
