Alexander Drozdetsky

Any news on him, he seems like an intriguing prospect, but I know that there is some concern that he might never come over to play in the NHL, I saw that he's gotten up to 180+ lbs and so maybe hes beginning to fill out.

If he was going to come over, I think he would have done so a couple of years ago.

Thats not what I wanted to hear, I was hoping he was stuck in customs.

I hope so, he seems (I am NO expert) to be picking up his play and seems to have gotten bigger, if 185 is bigger, I think the last time I saw he was 170. Anyway would be nice to at least come over for camp next year.

How old is he now? Ohhh and also, whatever happened to Roman Malek, wasnt he supposed to be the best Czech goalie since Hasek? What happened to him?

I think Drozdestky will remain in Russia. He gets paid well, plus he won't have to spend time in the minors. I believe that if he were going to come he would have come by now. He could just be a late bloomer who could still come over, but I doubt it.


Several people have commented on how Malek blew his chance a few years ago when he refused to come to USA unless given a one-way contract. He has got to be almost 30 by now, so I don't think he'll come over. I'd certainly trade his rights if anyone was willing to take him.

Malek is 28 and is playing for Plzen in the Czech league. The Flyers still hold his rights.

I don't think, that Droz is 1st or 2nd line material for strong NHL team. But in "new nhl" he will be able to score goals. His career in Russia very inconsistent. Possible, came time to try itself in North America.
He play for SKA (Saint Petersburg) right now. 12gp, 13 pts (3+10) and 6pim.

He is 43rd in SL in points (25, 9 Goals +16 Assists in 42 Games) . I seem to remember him coming over for a Rookie camp several years ago and the Flyers were impressed but did not sign him.
