Well that was easy.
Blue Jackets prospect Elvis Merzlikins has made his decision where he is going to play during the 2018/19 season. It appears that he will be playing in Europe for one more season. It was so important, that he answered it himself via Twitter.
Hey Guys! Lets just relax! The season 2018/2019 I will play with @OfficialHCL !— Elvis Merzlikins (@Merzly30) May 23, 2018
Merzlikins was a stand out player during the 2018 IIHF World Championship. He had a .940 save percentage in six games leading the team to outside of group play.
