Latvian hockey player Kristiāns Rubīns will continue his career with Ärnšeldsvíka’s Swedish Hockey League (SHL) team “MoDo”, which Kristers Gudļevskis helped return to Sweden’s strongest league last season, the club announced on 6 June.

Rubīns, who helped Latvia win the bronze medal at the world championship with two goals in the decisive match against the USA, signed a one-season deal with “MoDo”.

Rubin started this season with Ottawa Senators farm club Belleville Senators and has amassed six (2+4) points in 42 games in the American Hockey League (AHL).

He was later traded to the Calgary Flames’ ranch club, the Calgary Wranglers, where he had two assists in three regular season games. In the Calder Cup, the Latvian scored one goal and two assists in six games.

The 25-year-old defender made his National Hockey League (NHL) debut last season, playing three games for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Rubin entered the “Maple Leafs” system when he signed an ECHL contract with the Newfoundland “Growlers” team in August 2018. Less than three months later, he signed his first AHL contract.

Rubin played for the Western Hockey League (WHL) Medicine Hat Tigers in North America at junior level. Even before that, Rubin played three seasons in Sweden, playing in the youth teams of the club “Vasteras” and in the main unit.

Last season, “MoDo”, with Gudlevsky defending his goal in the final series, won Sweden’s second strongest league (“Allsvenskan”) and earned the right to play in the SHL next season.
