Former Dynamo Minsk striker Nick Merkley will strengthen the offensive potential “Motorist” said the two-time winner of the Gagarin Cup Sergei Konkov .

The Yekaterinburg club announced on Tuesday the signing of a contract with Merkley. The agreement with the 27-year-old hockey player is for two years. The Minsk club received monetary compensation.

— Nick Merkley was the leader of Dynamo Minsk. I think that for the Belarusian team his departure was a loss. And Avtomobilist, in turn, strengthened its attacking line. It found a good foreign player, adapted to the Russian championship. This is a good strengthening of the attacking potential of the Ural team, “Konkov told RB Sport.

Merkley has been playing for Dynamo since 2022. Last season, Merkley played 65 games in the KHL regular season and scored 32 points (16 goals and 16 assists). In six playoff games, he has 4 (3+1) points.
