Janus, Jaroslav

AHL Game Night: 1-2-09 Admirals at Phantoms

Janus loses a squeaker in his return to the Admirals.

NOR-2
ADK-3

Jaroslav Janus allowed 3 goals on 33 shots for the loss. Interesting factoid: Janus makes three members of the Admirals from the mean streets of Presov, Slovakia (Mihalik and Simek).

First Period
ADK Matsumoto, (15) (Laliberte, Nodl), 5:09
NOR Simek, (8) (Wishart, Syroczynski), 17:04 (PP)
ADK Nodl, (4) (Mormina, Laliberte), 19:59

Second Period
NOR Simek, (9) (Smolenak, Krajicek), 8:15
ADK Legein, (16) (Curry, Mormina), 9:44 (PP)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Juraj Simek was named the game's second star.

In 19 games since returning to Norfolk from his recall to Tampa, Ryan Craig has just 3 goals. With Brandon Bochenski now up with the Lightning, it's going to be critical for Craig, along with other guys like Radek Smolenak, to step up. On a similar note, don't you wish the Lightning's more touted prospects all were playing as well as an unheralded guy like Juraj Simek?

Updated 2: Lightning Sign Janus

GoErie.com reported Thursday Lightning prospect Jaroslav Janus of the Erie Otters has signed with Tampa Bay. The report states it's a two-way contract, and will end the young goaltender's junior career.

Update: The Lightning have confirmed the signing, saying it's a standard three-year deal, and Janus has been assigned to Norfolk.

Dustin Tokarski and Riku Helenius have been splitting No.1 duties in Norfolk, but after Lightning goaltender Antero Niittymaki missed a game last week, Tampa Bay recalled Helenius and Norfolk was forced to sign a goaltender for just a two days to fill the second slot with the Ads.

Update 2: Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports Tokarski and Janus will get the majority of the work in Norfolk with Helenius waiting his turn. Erlendsson spoke with Lightning/Admirals GM Brian Lawton Saturday.

Janus, a sixth round pick of the Bolts this past summer, went 7-4-2-0 with a 2.81 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage with Erie after returning to the team in November from a long amateur tryout with the Admirals. He made two starts in Norfolk, allowing three goals.
