Mursak, Smith, Jordan off to WJHC

Saginaw Spirit winger Jan Mursak has taken a temporary leave of absence from the team to participate in the World Junior Championship with Team Slovenia for the second consecutive year.

The IIHF Under-20 Division I ‘B' tournament will take place in Latvia from December 12 through December 18. Mursak tallied five points on three goals and two assists in last year's tournament that saw Slovenia post a record of 1-3-0-0.

“We wish Jan and Team Slovenia the best of luck in the tournament,” stated Spirit GM Don Edwards.

Plymouth Whalers goaltender Jeremy Smith was selected for Team USA and defenseman Michal Jordan has received an invitation to try out for the Czech Republic team.
