ELVIS MERZLIKINS  Latvia
a.k.a. "Elvis Merzļikins"

Open print friendly window (pop-up) views: 57040

BIRTHYEAR 1994-04-13 BIRTHPLACERiga, LAT
AGE 22 NATION Latvia
POSITION G CATCHES L
HEIGHT 191 cm / 6'3" WEIGHT 82 kg / 181 lbs
YOUTH TEAM HC Lugano CONTRACT 18/19
NHL DRAFT 2014 round 3 #76 overall by Columbus Blue Jackets

Elvis Merzlikins is a very athletic butterfly-Goaltender who is well sized and covers a lot of the net. He loves to challenge shooters and never gives up on a shot. Despite his decent reflexes, he is a goaltender who lets the puck hit him and control the rebounds. Needs to play a more composed game, as he tends to overplay certain situations. Handles the puck very well, as Elvis Merzlikins is a respectable stickhandler and can play long outlet passes. (by Rafik Soliman, April 2014)

Plays with a Swiss Player-licence and doesn't count against the foreign-contingent in Switzerland.
