“I was nervous only for the first few seconds, then my teammates helped me on the substitution and I felt good. The meeting was very balanced, but it was the conversion of chances that decided,” said the 23-year-old Kelemen, according to, who became the third Slovak after Juraj Slafkovski and Pavlov Regenda with a premiership duel this season:

“Profiliga represents the highest level in a player’s career and I am happy that he could join.”

On Tuesday, the management of Arizona called Kelemen from the farm team Tucson Roadrunners (AHL) to the first team, in which he replaced Michael Carcone.

The Slovak winger got the chance to start skating first, and for a few seconds he was completely alone on the ice. Asked what it was like to experience it, he said with a smile: “I was careful because I was afraid I would fall. But it was definitely an unforgettable moment.”

Kelemen signed a two-year rookie contract with the Coyotes last May and headed to the AHL farm after the coyotes’ training camp. He played 39 games for Tucson, in which he collected 20 Canadian points for nine goals and 11 assists.

Coach Andre Tourigny also praised the Slovakian forward after the meeting: “He showed several good things, he was fast, valid in defense and was able to win a lot of pucks.”

The attacker spent 10 minutes and 4 seconds on the ice, sent one shot at the opponent’s goal and presented himself with three points.

“My fiancee was in the audience and my parents went to Slovakia for a few days and could not be here for my premiere. But they were watching it on TV. I think that everyone was happy for me for this chance, and I was too,” stated Kelemen.
