Petr Sykora was hoping to land an NHL job, but he couldn't find a taker, so he decided to head to Switzerland to play. Sykora could still wind up in the NHL this season, but he will have to clear waivers before signing with a team of his choice. (Updated 1/29/13).
06/09/2012 11:53 No lineup changes for Devils in Game 5
The New Jersey Devils will make no lineup changes for Game 5 which means defenseman Henrik Tallinder and forward Petr Sykora will both dress for a second straight game.
Still in contract limbo as of press time, Petr Sykora is seeking to remain with New Jersey after a surprising 21-goal, 44-point effort last season in his return to North American hockey following the 2010-11 season in Europe. Sykora likely wants a two-year contract, which the Devils may be unwilling to give the aging winger. Should he return to the Devils, it's unwise to think he'll better last seasons totals, thus making him a viable option in very deep leagues. (Updated 8/14/12)
