Jakub Voracek made his KHL debut yesterday for HC Lev Prague. It took him two periods to get his skating legs under him, but he was dominant in the third period of the team's 3-1 victory over Avangard Omsk.
Voracek played 15:09 in his first game, skating 17 shifts. He hustled up a beautiful assist on a Jiri Novotny goal that gave HC Lev a 2-1 lead in the third period. Later, playing the right half-boards on the power play, he created a pair of prime scoring chances for his team. While we all wish he was doing that for the Flyers rather than a KHL team, it is still a hopeful sign that he can pick up where he left off in the stretch drive and playoffs of last season.
