Mariusz Czerkawski plays for Djurgarden in the Swedish elite league,
and he has scored 5 G + 6 A = 11 P in approx. 14 games so far, and on
that he leads his team in point scoring.
He's an offensive player that can do the unexpected... he scores real nice
goals sometimes, but sometimes he can also give away the puck in his own
zone when he tries to be too flashy.
I would say he's the Jaromir Jagr of the Swedish elite league... good reach,
good deeking moves and a sense for scoring. He also has a hair flow like
I can't quite understand that the Bruins wants a player of that kind, but
Mariusz has been on a Bruins training camp, and obviously they like him
since they pay that kind of money for him.
I can add that he's Born April 13 1972, length 184 cm (6'0"), weight 91 kg
(205 lbs). A finesse player. Nickname: Marre. Girlfriend: Model and
singer Izabella Scorupco (sp?) (born in Poland too, lived in Sweden since for
quite some time).
