Slovak hockey players Christián Jaroš from the Ottawa Senators, Martin Marinčin from the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tomáš Jurčo from the Vegas Golden Knights remain in their NHL clubs.
They were not withdrawn from the waiver list by other profiligy teams within the set 24-hour period. The tsn.ca portal informed about it.
Their clubs now have three options to do with a trio of Slovak hockey players. They will either keep them in the team, send them to the farm, or write them in the so-called taxi team.
This reserve team is a novelty introduced by the league leadership at the time of the coronavirus pandemic. It consists of four to six players who will travel and train with the 23-member first team and will be ready to join if there are positive cases in the A-team.
On Monday, the profiligy clubs included a total of up to 89 players on the waiver list. The teams downloaded only four. Goalkeeper Anton Forsberg heads from Edmonton to Carolina, another goalkeeper Eric Comrie from Edmonton to New Jersey, defender Luca Sbisa from Winnipeg to Nashville and striker Rudolfs Balcers returns from Ottawa to San Jose.
On the contrary, there was no interest in the Corey Perry duo – Michael Frolík (Montreal) or another experienced striker Tyler Johnson, who remains in the team of the reigning champion of Tampa Bay.
The 28-year-old striker Jurčo signed a one-way contract with Vegas worth $ 700,000 in October. If he replaces the Golden Knights, it will be his fourth place in the NHL. In 2011, he was drafted from 35th place by the Detroit Red Wings, from which he headed to Chicago in the 2016/2017 season.
In 2019/2020, he belonged to the Edmonton Oilers organization, and in the first team he played in 12 matches, in which he scored two Canadian points for assists. He has played a total of 223 games in the NHL so far, in which he has scored 54 points for 23 goals and 31 assists.
Marinčin, the old defender, has also been working in the Toronto Maple Leafs since the 2015/2016 season, where he came from the Edmonton Oilers. Last season, he played 26 games in the regular season and scored three assists, and three points-free games in the playoffs. He started a total of 236 duels in the profile and scored 34 points (5 + 29).
Twenty-four-year-old Jaroš was drafted by Ottawa in 2015 from 139th place, he made his NHL debut in the 2017/2018 season and together he played 76 games for the “senators”, in which he scored 13 points (1 + 12).
Last year, he entered the profile in thirteen meetings and recorded three assists. However, he spent more time on the Belleville Senators farm in the AHL, where he collected 15 points (2 + 13) in 34 duels.
Rose to the farm, to the AHL and Húska
Slovak hockey player Adam Ružička will start the season in the lower overseas AHL competition. The management of the Calgary Flames sent him to a farm in Stockton just before the start of the new year of the NHL.
Flames, just like last summer, invited the 21-year-old striker to a preparatory camp, where he lasted until the final cuts in the squad. Despite his good performance, he did not win a place in the first team.
It will not even be part of the so-called taxi team, ie a four- to six-member reserve in case the A-team hits the coronavirus. The rose will have to wait for her first profile start. He joined the AHL last season, scoring 27 points in 10 games for 10 goals and 17 assists in 54 games in the Stockton Heat jersey.
Slovak goalkeeper Adam Húska, who was sent by the New York Rangers at the end of the camp to the AHL Hartford Wolf Pack team, also travels to the farm. The “riders” bet on the goalkeeper pair Alexandar Georgiev – Igor Šesťorkin, Keith Kinkaid will be the third goalkeeper in the taxi team.
Twenty-three-year-old Húska wore the jersey of the mother HKM Zvolen this season, for which he won three matches in the highest Slovak competition. He will continue in Hartford, where he has been active for the past two seasons, having scored 28 starts in the AHL last year, with a success rate of 89.4 percent and an average of 3.03 goals collected per match.
