The former CH goaltender nevertheless enjoyed a fine career in the league, and was able to be number one for many years. Lately, he's been playing second fiddle and, at 38, is still looking for a contract.
In an interview with Slovak informant Tomas Prokop, Halak was asked about his compatriot Juraj Slafkovsky. According to him, fans don't have to worry about a slightly more disappointing rookie season.
Coming from a goalie who faced Alex Ovechkin's shots in his prime, that's worth its weight in gold!
Getting back to Halak, he's confident of signing an NHL contract within the next few days, but this will probably be his last year. He will then return to Europe.
