Out goes Miller, in comes another controversial player for Liptovsky Mikulas - probably Severi Lahtinen who is appealing a two-year sentence for r**e.
Lahtinen began this season with JYP of the Finnish LIIGA with the hope of continuing to grow as a player. However, he was limited to only 8 games before he got into legal trouble.
Lahtinen's New Team's Controversial Histor
Lahtinen's new team, Liptovsky Mikulas, has a history of bringing in controversial players that no other team would take on. They last made headlines when they brought Mitchell Miller in.
An official announcement is now being anticipated and when it is officially announced, there will almost certainly be backlash.
