Playing career[edit]

Indrašis began playing hockey in Latvian minor and youth leagues.[1] During this period he played for Liepājas Metalurgs youth team and SK LSPA/Riga.

On October 2, 2011 Indrašis received his second recall to Dinamo Riga, and made his debut in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) on October 5, 2011 in a game against HC Spartak Moscow.[2] However his break came when Ted Nolan selected Indrašis for 2012 World Championship roster.[3] He played the tournament on the first line along with Jānis Sprukts and Miķelis Rēdlihs, scoring 3 goals and 5 points in 7 games.[4]

After the breakthrough in world championships Indrašis signed three year contract with Dinamo Rīga.[5] At the start of the season Indrašis continued to show his scoring touch, but his production decreased in middle of the season. At this point Indrašis was sent affiliate team.[6] Later he was recalled and spent the rest of the season with Dinamo.

Indrašis went to NHL Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks summer camps in 2012 and 2013 respectively.[7][8]

Indrašis was selected to make his debut for the Latvian national team in the 2012 IIHF World Championship Stockholm Sweden. His debut came on May 5, 2012, and he scored the 1–0 goal in that game (although Latvia went on to lose 2–5 against Russia).[9] He continued to have a successful tournament becoming top scorer of the tournament for team Latvia.[10] and was selected as one of the best players of team Latvia in the tournament.[11] Indrašis was again selected for 2013 World Championship roster for the Latvian national team, but had a less productive tournament registering only one assist in 7 games.
