MICHAL HANDZUS  Slovakia

BIRTHYEAR 1977-03-11 BIRTHPLACEBanska Bystrica, SVK
AGE 38 NATION Slovakia
POSITION C SHOOTS L
HEIGHT 196 cm / 6'5" WEIGHT 98 kg / 216 lbs
YOUTH TEAM HC Banska Bystrica CONTRACT 14/15
NHL DRAFT 1995 round 4 #101 overall by St. Louis Blues


Handzuš is a big center with a great defensive game. Owns decent offensive instincts and great faceoff ability. A hard worker and teamleader with big influence for a team, he is not a very physical player, even though he is huge. Also lacks in speed.
