Auzins not in­ter­ested in any other EPL club

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Star net­min­der Ja­nis Auzins in­sists he will never leave Phan­toms for an­other English Premier League side.

The city club lost four key men to fel­low sec­ondtier sides last sum­mer with Mi­lan Baranyk and Craig Scott switch­ing to fierce ri­vals Mil­ton Keynes, and Greg Pick and Edgars Be­bris mov­ing to Manch­ester. Fringe player Brad Moore also went to Hull.

Lat­vian ace Auzins was also in de­mand dur­ing the close sea­son, but he was happy to ex­tend his stay at Phan­toms into a third EPL cam­paign.

The 25 year-old is happy at Planet ice and hopes the new cam­paign could come com­plete with sil­ver­ware even though Phan­toms are an im­port down.

Auzins said: “There are some good guys in the locker room and I en­joy be­ing part of this club.

“I like it in Peter­bor­ough. The fans are good, the place is nice and I am happy here. That is why I de­cided to come back again.

“I do not want to play for any other team in this league. If I get the chance in the fu­ture to go into the Elite League, I will have to think about it. But right now I hope we can win a tro­phy this sea­son if we carry on work­ing hard.”

Auzins ad­mits he has been par­tic­u­larly i mpressed with the de­ter­mi­na­tion of the play­ers in front of him so far this sea­son.

Headded: “We were fan­tas­tic against Bas­ingstoke. We had peo­ple putting their bod­ies on the line and throw­ing them­selves in front of the puck.”
