Cervenka had nine goals and eight assists in 39 games for the Flames. His signing in February of 2012 was enthusiastically trumpeted by Calgary general manager Jay Feaster.
“Roman is a highly skilled player with great hands, excellent vision and the ability to score goals at an elite level of play,” said Feaster in a release. “Our scouts in Europe identified him as someone who could slot into our top six forward group and play in the NHL as a top two line centre. John Weisbrod went to see him play early in the KHL Playoffs and came away confirming everything we had heard from our scouts in Europe. We made an aggressive pitch to convince him that Calgary was the perfect place for him to start his NHL career, and we are extremely pleased Roman agreed. We look forward to welcoming him to the Flames and our great city.”
So much for that.
The search for centers continues in Calgary.
