Janus, Jaroslav

Tokjanius

Here's your stat of the week:

Through six games, Norfolk's goaltenders have a combined 2.19 GAA and .925 save percentage. Mind you, they're 2-4-0 as a group, but you'd have to believe that if Tokarski, Helenius, and Janus keep this up the Admirals are going to be in great shape.

I mean, it's not like Martins Karsums can stay scoreless forever, right?

CHL Game Night: 10/14

Meanwhile, with Jaroslav Janus making his pro debut last night for Norfolk, his junior team in Erie lost yet again and have the league’s fewest points at 6.

Jaroslav Janus Makes Admirals Opening Roster

The Tampa Bay Lightning's 2009 6th round pick Jaroslav Janus has made the Norfolk Admirals season opening roster as the team's third goaltender. Janus, still without an NHL entry-level contract, has been retained by the Admirals on a Professional Tryout contract. Janus has drawn praise from Lightning GM Brian Lawton as having had a strong training camp, and there have been reports Janus' agent has been contacted about a contract. Janus joins fellow Bolt netminding prospects Riku Helenius and Dustin Tokarski battling to establish themselves as the Admirals go-to-guy in the nets for the 2009-10 season. It is still possible for the Lightning to reassign Janus to his OHL junior team in Erie, but that option is looking less and less likely. Janus led the Slovakian World Junior team to a medal-round finish last year.
