— What have you heard about “Spartacus” to the transition team?

— Knew it was a good team and that last years “Spartak” played consistently in the playoffs. Want to be part of this team.

— Have you ever talked with Oleg Znarka about your role in the team?

— Yes, we had a little chat. I know that I can do on the court, coaches also know what to expect from me, so I don’t think there are any problems. I can not wait when I see the guys on the team.

— Are you familiar with any of the players?

— No, I knew no one, but of course I’ve heard about some of the players on the team.

— You talked to goalie coach Stefan Persson before moving to Spartak?

— Yes, with him I called. Good that the team is the person who also speaks Swedish.

— Do you think Spartak will qualify for the Cup in the new season?

— While I can say that we will try as far as possible. I hope that I will get down to the end and become Champions.

During his career YUCE played for several Swedish teams, and last season spent in the AHL, where earned 29 (4+25) points in 48 games for Texas and 3 (1+2) points in 5 matches for “Springfield”.
