After hosts Lithuania and Latvia, Estonia is the third Baltic team to announce the Baltic Challenge Cup squad.

Estonian Head Coach Jussi Tupamäki brings 26 players from seven European leagues into the squad. New in the squad is Siim Liivik, who, after his very good performance at Klagenfurt AC (KAC) in the community league EBEL (Erste Bank Liga), fulfilled his dream with this convocation. It is the first time in his career, that the 30-year-old Routnier is wearing the team shirt of Estonia (see interview from ….).

Goalie Koitmaa has strengthened his position following his move to the Hungarian team Vasas Budapest (Erste Liga), where the 28-year-old played all matches in the season so far. For Tupamäki no hindrance to convene the veteran yet, he was instrumental in the good performance of the IIHF World Championship Div IB in April in Kausas, involved.
