- BriseBois also told me that goalie Jaroslav Janus is looking for a place to play in Europe. Janus was a standout for Norfolk last season and the organization kept his rights by qualifying him. But for now he's a casualty of the team's depth at that position.
"We'll keep following his progress,'' BriseBois said. "He's a good player, a good prospect. He needs to play. He's looking for the best opportunity to get as many games as possible.''
Not sure if you guys noticed this, but Jaroslav Janus has signed with HC Slovan Bratislava of the KHL for next season. If he plays well, he'll probably be back, but this is a good move for him as he'll play against better competition and get more time than he did in Norfolk.

The fate of Jaroslav Janus and its eventual operation of the HC Slovan Bratislava should be decided in late August. (...)

See you then, when given the chance to prove herself, Belas play on Friday against JYP Jyväskylä and Sunday the measured forces with a team KalPa Kuopio.
yeap, he signed try out with Slovan Bratislava (KHL). It is expected he will sign contract for next season with Slovan. He is playing his 1st game tonight, against JYP (finnish champion), it is half of 2nd period now and he has shutout, a few great glove saves.
