Good article on the Great Dane...
Per Jeff Cox, Czech Defenseman Jakub Sirota has committed to Maine.
He was a bit of a "suitcase" in the USHL. Drafted by Des Moines, traded to Cedar Rapids, and then Cedar Rapids traded him back to the Bucs.
Bucs released him and he caught on in the NAHL.
Mobile 2 way defenseman.
The year before he was on a bd Cedar Rapids team. Looks like 5 defensemen(averaging 52 games played each) had worse plus minuses.
It could be the case of a decent player falling through the cracks. Here is a link describing his style...
Also, he wasn't taken in the recent phase two USHL draft, so unless I am missing something he won't play in USHL.
Edit: Unfortunately Thiessen got hurt in second game of RBC cup and didn't play the last two games. Let's hope it isn't a serious injury. So Steinbach was eliminated. But Schmidt-Svestrup, Drobot, and Needham are still playing in USHL finals. Fargo has a chance to finish it off tonight at 7 pm.
