Speaking on Wednesday evening, Phantoms Head Coach Jon Kynaston said “Erik is an excellent two-way centre who is more than capable of scoring 40 goals in an EPL season. He has great pedigree and will be a fine addition to our squad.
â€œHe is much more than merely being a goalscorer though as he possesses a strong all-round game. Weâ€™ve done our homework on him and all the reports weâ€™ve had back told us that Erik would be a good fit for the club.
â€œHe has played at the top level in Slovakia where the standard would be a tough above our Elite League. I truely believe Erik will be one of the top players in our league this season, and we’re glad to have him here in Peterborough.â€
