Capitals’ star man Kim says Auf Wiedersehen to Edinburgh

Edinburgh Capitals Alex Kim today (mon) announced that he is leaving the Edinburgh club to join a team in Germany.

The 31-year-old forward – who joined from Korean outfit High 1 – has been one of the Edinburgh Capitals standout players this season being in the league’s top twenty points scorers.

Capitals General Manager Scott Neil said: “It is disappointing, especially after two good weekends where we have taken points from league title contenders and the timing of his departure could not have come at a worse time as we have important games against Dundee and Braehead in the coming weeks.”

“For practice this week, David Lomas will move up to the line with Hutchins and Cingel and Bari McKenzie will return to a line with Iain Bowie and Neil Hay. I wish Alex all the best for the future.”

The departing Alex Kim commented: “The experience here in Edinburgh has been great and one I will always remember. I want to thank Scott and the Capitals for giving me the opportunity to play here, however the offer from Germany was one I could not turn down. Thanks to all the fans for their support.”
