Traktor Ice Hockey Club general director Bors Vidgof:
We`ve been looking for an import player for a long time since such player has to be a leader, not just a part of the team. That`s why we have signed a two-year deal with Lukas Sedlak. He has experience in the NHL, he played for Columbus Blue Jackets. We hope that Lukas will be bright in our team and that the fans will enjoy him playing.
