[Roughly Translated] from Hokej.cz: Filip Hronek and Mountfield HK still negotiating a contract extension

Hokej.cz’s Marek Hedbavny reports that Filip Hronek and his current Czech Extraliga team, Mountfield HK, are dealing with a contractual deadline. Hedbavny suggests that, should Hronek and Mountfield not reach a contract, rumors are swirling that Filip Zadina’s team, Ocelari Trinec, may reach out to Hronek. What follows is roughly translated from Czech:

Hronek’s contract will end after the weekend. Will he stay with Hradec Králové?

Filip Hronek, currently the biggest name in the Tipsport Extraliga, and at the same time the most productive defender of this season, is still negotiating his extension with Hradec Králové.

His contract will end on the last day of November [Monday November 30th]. He will definitely play for Hradec Králové against Třinec on Sunday, but what then?

“The amendment to the contract has not been signed, we are still negotiating,” General Manager Aleš Kmoníček wrote on Hradec Králové’s website on Friday.

Rumors are already appearing on social networks that [Ocelari] Třinec is circling around Hronek–just like [they were] in summer. O2 TV Sport expert Jakub Koreis came up with this speculation on Twitter.

As the situation regarding the NHL remains confusing, the management of the [organization] officially still looks forward to January 1. However, unofficial news speaks of another [delay], or even the [suspension] of the entire season.

So Hronek could last for some time in the extraleague.

But will it be at home in Hradec Králové?

So far, he is by far the most useful player on Mountfield: in fourteen games, he has helped them with fourteen points. He is not only the most productive defender of Tipsport Extraliga, but also the best scorer among the defensemen (with 5 goals). In addition, he is the second-best defender in the statistics of +/- (+12) and in the number of shots per goal (36).

  1. First do not get hurt on Sunday.

    Is there any rhyme or reason to what these teams pay the players, no Salary Cap, I assume? Just rich owners, sounds like the NHL, hmmmm?

    Certainly good to see Hronek turn into playing with the Wings on the top pairing. He seems to remind me of Seider who is still a young buck getting experience. With DeK the Wings could have 3 solid DMen. I don’t think the Wings have had that for quite a long time. Not sure if McIsaac , injury prone or bad luck, is still in the prospect group. Playing in Finland won’t hurt and he is only 20 and survived a lot of missed time. I think the Wings want him to come back to GR (if they ever start playing). Another Topic! Personally , I think he might be better off getting a full season in Finland. He got better as the World Juniors went along, you could see he had some skills and just coming off an injury to play for Canada. Fingers Crossed!

    3 pretty good young DMen, Maybe?? It was hard to type that but certainly exciting.
