Goertzen complimented Mihalik’s skating ability, decision making, and heavy shot. “He played with a lot of poise,” said Goertzen of the 6’8 ½”, 234 pound Slovakian defenseman. Goertzen also singled out the play of 2005 pick Marek Kvapil, saying he “attracted a lot of attention with his nifty moves.” Kvapil, who opened the scoring for Tampa Bay against Atlanta, was signed this summer after being a sixth round selection in July’s NHL Entry Draft.
