The WALDECK Peterborough Phantoms are saddened to announce that forward #91 Lukas Sladkovsky will not be returning for the 24/25 season.

We would like to thank Lukas for his hard-work and dedication to the team over the past 2 seasons! We wish him all the best as he enters a new chapter in his life as moves to the USA.

He had a personal best season on points last season, finishing on an impressive 95 points from 45 goals, and 50 assists. Lukas achieved the 9th highest points per season in Phantoms history, and became only the first European import in Phantoms History to achieve 90 points in a season. In his two seasons with the club Lukas posted up 174 points from 115 games and became both a National Cup Champion, and a Playoff Champion.

Lukas Sladkovksy had the following to say: “First of all I would like to thank all of the people involved with the Phantoms organisation for the last two years.

Thank you to all of the fans for supporting us along the way, you kept us going even in the hard times and you made me feel welcome since day one. To my teammates and Slava, you guys have been incredible every game, every challenge we faced bought is closer together and we never stoped believing. It’s been an hour to lift and share those two trophies with you.

Thank you once again for an unforgettable journey, I’m proud to have been a part of this team and the history we made in the last two seasons.”


Slava Koulikov commented: “Lukas has it all. He came to us with many good qualities as a hockey player - skating, skill, vision. But one thing he wanted to achieve was to win the first trophy of his career. We both knew we would have to work really hard, put individual achievements aside and adjust and learn from each other. Lukas did exactly what it takes to win not just his first trophy but his second aswell. He has grown throughout both seasons, becoming a very important player in the semi-final and final of the cup triumph in the 22/23 season, and showed high leadership qualities in the Final Four Championship win of last season!

I would like to thank Lukas for putting up with my demands and congratulate him on his achievements over the last two seasons! It is time for Lukas to open a new chapter after hockey. We all wish him and Olivia the best of luck going forward in achieving their goals as a family!”
