Another day, another Czech Blackhawks player making a run for Europe.
This time, it’s Michal Rozsival, who signed with the Blackhawks on September 11. He has signed with HC Plzeň of the Czech Extraliga.
What does tyden.cz have to say about this? Let us find out through Google Translate:
Pilsen hockey players in the league will strengthen during the NHL lockout Finnish goalie Tuukka Rask, who works in Boston, and before him rejoiced in victory in the Stanley Cup. Zapadocesky club also hired Czech defender Martin shoemaker, who will be in a month and then the team should move to Sweden, where he plays with an annual break in the KHL since 2008. By cadre from Pilsen has directed as well as other NHL bek Michal Rozsival.
…Okay, that used a lot of English words, but still wasn’t the least bit understandable. Also, I think that was mostly about Tuukka Rask and whoever has a name that translates to Martin Shoemaker. But that last sentence was totally about Roszival signing with the team, so it counts!
According to Matias Strokzyk, the contract is for one month.
As you’ll recall, Michael Frolik was the first Blackhawk to bolt to Europe, signing with Piráti Chomutov on Saturday.
