The Langton Royals have announced the signing of defenseman Adam Prezvinsky for the 2020-21 CPJHL season.

Prezvinsky is a 17-year-old native of Brno, Czech Republic.

"I think that Adam will bring the mobility and vision to help us offensively next season," said Royals coach-GM Jason Do Paco. "He skates and moves the puck very well. I'm looking forward to working with his game and fine-tweaking his already natural ability."

On signing to play in Langton, Prezvinsky said he heard about the organization by word of mouth.

"I heard about the team from a teammate last season and was very interested in playing hockey overseas," said Prezvinsky. "I wanted to improve my overall skills, whether it is skating, shooting, or puck handling, I feel I can get better at all these things. I also would like to learn English and get fluent in it. My goals are high for myself. I would like to develop, play at higher levels, and eventually play professional hockey." 

Prezvinsky also noted what type of defenseman the Royals can expect next season.

"I am an attacking defender," he said. "I like to attack."
