The Erste Bank Young Stars League has announced its schedule for the 2014-15 season. The first round of games begins on Sunday August 31st 2014. Medvescak's U20 team, which as in the past two seasons is composed of players from Zagreb, Mladost, and Medvescak, will play their first two games on home ice: Aug 31st against Innsbruck and Sept 6th versus HK Olimpija from Ljubljana.
"We have about thirty players in the preseason who have to fight for their place on the team considering that next week we are making our final roster. We practice twice a day and I'm happy with the players' work ethic and their attitude toward practices. Next week, before the seasons tarts, we're going to have two test rounds. On Tuesday the 26th we're playing a game against Jesenice in Jesenice, and on Thursday the 28th in Villach against VSV", said Medvescak U20's coach Danijel Kolombo.
