Euro News

Zdenek Okal

I found an article on Zdenek Okal. The article is incredibly hard to translate but it says that Okal will be training with HC Zlin(Czech Republic) in the Summer and will try to make that team next season.

Next year Okal would be a 20 year old euro "overeager" and a victim in the numbers game. It was expected for him to go back home to resume his hockey career.

Link to his eliteprospects page
----- has confirmed that last years Tigers CHL Import Pick (Round #2 #76 overall) Rasmus Daamgard has signed a 1 year deal with SønderjyskE, which means his chances of playing in a Tigers uniform is incredibly slim.

The only way he would play here is if he is signed by an NHL team and they co-erce him to come over, and he has an nhl signing out-clause.....So Expect the Tigers to utilize both of their import picks.

The Tigers have the 40th, and 100th picks barring trades. The CHL Import draft is still a ways away sometime around the very end of June.
