However, the 31yr-old Kurka will get a short-term contract at best. When Juraj Kolnik will be back from his injury, he would have to leave again.

Kurka was drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in the year 2000 and played a total of 17 NHL-games (3 goals, 2 assists). During the last season he played for Shakter Soligorsk in Belarus and for the Krefeld Pinguine in the DEL.
