ZBYNEK MICHALEK RUMORS

Rare Michalek goal helps Coyotes beat Penguins 3-1

Two nights after losing to the Eastern Conference's worst team, the Phoenix Coyotes handled the best. Zbynek Michalek scored against his former team, his first goal in 83 games, and the Coyotes became the first Pacific Division team to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in regulation this season with a 3-1 victory on Saturday night. Mike Ribeiro had a goal and an assist for Phoenix...

Coyotes notes: Michalek returns, brings much-needed grit

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- No sacrifice is too great for Coyotes defenseman (and soon-to-be Czech Republic Olympian) Zbynek Michalek. He played through a cracked bone in his foot last season. He returned early -- too early -- from a hip injury earlier this season. He even blocked a shot with his face in the preseason against the Kings, a play that cost him three front teeth. So when he...

Coyotes’ Zbynek Michalek tests ailing hip against Canucks

Considering Coyotes defenseman Zbynek Michalek isn’t sure if his ailing hip will ever regain complete health this season, a timeline for a return hasn’t existed. But after two weeks of skating on his own — and two solid practice days earlier this week — Michalek decided Thursday’s game against a Pacific Division rival, the Vancouver Canucks, was an appropriate time for...

Things you forgot: The Michalek salary dump

Let's just say it, Ray Shero's tenure in Pittsburgh has been as close to flawless as we've seen. He hasn't made a ton of big moves, but when he does, they usually pay off. But his biggest failures to date were the Paul Martin, and Zbynek Michalek signings in the summer 2010. He signed them for contracts worth a grand total of 45 million. And then, at the draft...

Zbynek Michalek Looks Forward To His Return To Phoenix

from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic, So when a trade executed at the NHL draft on Friday paved the way for his return, Michalek was just as eager as the Coyotes to reunite. “That team’s really close to my heart; so is the city, and I know they have great fans,” Michalek said. “I’m really happy to be back, and hopefully I can continue playing the way I was when...

A farewell of Zbynek Michalek

In the summer of 2010, Shero was all about the Pens' blue line.  He signed Paul Martin and Zbynek Michalek to lengthy deals.  And now only Paul Martin remains.  Michalek is gone. His 2010-2011 season made Shero look like a genius.  From even the first preseason game, we all could see that Michalek's size alone was something the Pens' blue line needed.  Then as...

Zbynek Michalek avoids suspension and fine.

  Via Puckdaddy: Zbynek Michalek of the Pittsburgh Penguins was in a peculiar position on Monday: Arguing that his hit on Matt Hendricks of the Washington Capitals didn't warrant anything more than the elbowing minor it received on Sunday afternoon, while waiting to hear if the hit Alex Ovechkin put on Michalek would received its own punishment. The first skate...
