My Man Mojzis

Somehow I missed this. Tomas Mojzis has signed with Russia's Sibir Novosibirsk.

During his final year of junior, Mojzis had a breakout season for the Seattle Thunderbirds. A slick skater and puck mover, it was fun to watch him work up to a 20 game point streak from the blueline. I thought he had a future in the NHL as a 5th or 6th D man and power play specialist.

Boy was I wrong.

After a few games up for the Canucks, he was traded to the Blues who also gave him a brief stint in the show. Mojzis didn't do poorly either time but apparently not good enough...and off he goes to Russia for what I'm sure is richer pastures than a two-way NHL contract going the wrong direction.
