Comments Off on Czech league team makes Krejci signing official

Petr Hemsky — father of Ales, GM of Czech league outfit Pardubice — has announced his club has agreed to terms with Boston Bruins center David Krejci.

The details, from TSN’s Aaron Ward:

Rumors of Krejci signing with the Czech Extraliga club broke several weeks ago when it was learned Ales Hemsky was set to join — Hemsky played at both the junior and senior levels with Pardubice, before joining QMJHL Hull in 2000.

The signing means Pardubice now has three locked-out NHLers in the fold: Krejci, Hemsky and Detroit Red Wings forward Jakub Kindl.

The club also employs ex-NHLers Kris Beech and Ales Pisa.
