Another chapter added to Pavelec’s European adventure

  • Print

Ondrej Pavelec’s European adventure is going to feature another chapter.

Allan Walsh, the agent for the Winnipeg Jets’ goaltender, has confirmed that Pavelec has signed a six-game contract with the Lahti Pelicans of the Finnish SM-Liiga. The Pelicans’ website also indicated Pavelec could be in their lineup as early as Tuesday against defending Finnish champion Jyvaskyla. Lahti is second-last in the league, 13th overall.

It was initially believed Pavelec would return to North American after his contract with HC Liberec Tigers of the Czech Extraliga expired earlier this month – either to Winnipeg or to Montreal, where he had been training before initially heading overseas – but this latest signing will keep him in Europe through early next month and maybe longer.

During his stay with Liberec, Pavelec posted sub-par numbers (a 3.50 goals-against average and .896 save percentage) but the 25 year old did help the Czech Republic win the recent Karjala Cup, posting a 1-0 win over Finland and a 2-1 victory over Russia. Pavelec stopped 64 of the 65 shots he faced in the event.
