April 2023 – Locmelis had a mini coming-out party at the Summer edition of the 2022 World
Junior tournament, scoring three goals in six games on a subpar Latvian team. He parlayed this
into a successful campaign with his Lulea team in the Swedish Junior league, putting up 25 goals
and 34 assists in just 44 games. Locmelis will look to adapt to the North American game next
season when he plays his freshman season at the University of Massachusetts. With a looming Boston
rebuild and playing hockey in-state for college, Locmelis could be paving the way to crack the
Bruins roster in the coming years. Nate Duffett
