ROMUALDS LOKS TO PLAY IN TEXAS UNTIL END OF S42


Just last night a trade between the Hamilton Steelhawks and Texas Renegades was approved which saw the Latvian SHL prospect Romualds Loks traded to the Texas Renegades team located in Dallas.

Some Latvian outlets already rumored that Loks was looking for a way out and that Hamilton is not considering any future for the Latvian forward in the organisation but interestingly Loks was linked with Seattle Riot for a few hours before eventually being traded to Texas.

The future with Renegades was later consolidated with a 3 year deal worth 10 million actual thru S42.

Loks was all smiles while doing cardio in the cool morning weather of 51F degrees


The first to arrive were obviously some Latvian journalists who given the country's love for their players definitely wanted to find out as much as posssible about the move.

Hello, Romualds, glad to see you so happy today, how are you?

I'm really happy to be a part of this organization, I just had the warmest reception into the team, I can't wait to play for Texas.

Is this a hint you might be starting in the SHL this season?

No I don't think so. It's more than likely I'll be travelling to Kelowna when the pre-season will come closer but I'm definitely enjoying my time here at the moment. It's not too warm yet and ideal weather to do some outdoors cardio!

So about the season in Hamilton, what was it like?

I won't say I was particularly happy. If you look at how I was received when I was traded to Texas and when I was drafted for Hamilton I have to say those are two completely opposite receptions. For Hamilton at times it felt like I was a burden that they just had to get rid of.

There was also a conflict within the team, Connor Tanner was traded away, were you involved?

No, I obviously was playing in SMJHL at that time and wasn't aware of anything happening until the trade happened. I have to say Connor was such a good friend for me in Montreal and, perhaps, the only friend I would have if I ever had the chance to step up for Hamilton. Thankfully, I'm in a new home and I'm very happy here.

The contract negotiations went crazily fast, didn't they? Are you that confident in this organization?

Kind of. dankoa introduced me to everything, we had a discussion about the contract terms which was, perhaps, the shortest I've had in my career and then I just had to sign it! I don't think I could go wrong with this, they have a good prospect pool, I want to play with players my age in the future in SHL, that's why I talked with my agent about a possible move to Toronto North Stars since they have a massive number of future prospects.

Toronto North Stars? Were they ever in contention for you?

No, sadly. I've joined Texas though so I don't really care.

Some sports journalists are saying that the trade was an absolute steal in favour for Texas. What is your opinion?

I haven't had my rookie season in SHL yet, let's not run ahead of the events unfolding...

With the upcoming IIHF coming up what are your predictions?

I think the WJC East Europe team has a massive chance of performing very well. Latvians, however, have always been fighters despite their talent or skill so we will surprise someone this season.

And for Kelowna S40?

We were absolutely gutted to be eliminated by Vancouver so early. I'm happy for my friend Picard though, absolutely stoked to play together for the first time ever in the WJC!

Thank you guys, I really have to go now!
