"This is a very important personnel for the future of THW Kiel. Niko is one of our pillars for the years to come, he has been incredibly fast integrated in Kiel and has found his place in our team," said Managing Director of THW Kiel, Thorsten Storm.
Nikola Bilyk: "Since summer, I have been allowed to play for the THW Kiel and take responsibility, so I've had a great time here so I decided to extend my contract prematurely. We have a great team. I look forward to working with my fellow teammates and the fans to shape the future of THW."
THW head coach, Alfred Gislason: "I am very pleased with the speed at which Niko has integrated, and he is incredibly far-reaching for his age, and it is important for us to count on Niko for a long time."
