Spirit sign import picks Mursak, Zaborsky

Import forwards Jan Mursak and Tomas Zaborsky have signed their contracts to play for the Saginaw Spirit this season.

Mursak, a right wing, was drafted 33rd overall by the Spirit in the 2006 CHL Import Draft. The 1988-born player from Slovenia was also selected 182nd overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Zaborsky was drafted with the 36th pick. The 1986-born left wing is a native of Slovakia. He joins Spirit forward Tom Pyatt as a New York Rangers' prospect, being selected by New York 137th overall this past June.

OHL rules allow each team to have two active European players on their roster. Previous European Spirit players include Tomas Csabi, Georgi Misharin, Denis Yachmenev, Marek Kvapil, Michal Birner and Vaclav Meidl.
