  • The Missouri Mavericks have signed defenseman Lukas Bohunicky.
    Bohunicky, 24, is a native of Bratislava, Slovakia, and most recently played for HC Slovan Bratislava. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder is in his fifth professional season.
    “We believe Lukas will be an impact player for us,” Mavericks coach Scott Hillman said. “He is a very reliable defenseman and has high level experience, including playing in a preseason game this year against the New York Rangers.
    “He skates very well and will add more size and physicality to our blue line. Lukas also moves the puck up the ice efficiently helping to relieve pressure and better control the tempo of the game. We are very pleased to add this type of player to our roster at this time.”
    In his five seasons in Slovakia, Bohunicky accounted for five goals, 23 assists and 392 penalty minutes in 223 games played. He also accounted for five assists in 49 playoff games.
