Miks Indrašis, born 1990, is currently the top goalscorer of Dinamo Rīga and second in scoring overall with 8+8 in 21 games. Could be called a late bloomer, as only 9 months ago it didn't seem that he will ever do anything much in the KHL, but was noticed by coach Ted Nolan who took him to the WC and now he's improving day by day. Few days ago a fantastic game vs SKA Saint Petersburg, 2 goals + an assist and one of the goals scored also the winning goal 8 seconds before the end of the game.

In the last three games he's had he has 4+3... mighty impressive continuation of the big WC surprise. He's got size, he's got skill- the sky's the limit!
It could be classic example of how a young player can blossom if a coach just express and shows his confidence in them. Compared to other very talented players that are drafted or picked young for a club and then left hanging on their own without support with no or limited playing time. It shows that Nolan is really a good coach! It's not only about strategy and tactics but also getting the best out of your playing material.
From what I saw from the WC he was the biggest surprise, really coming from no-where (Ryan Lasch probably also surprised a lot of north american viewers, though in Finland they already knew).
