* Rangers amateur scout Rich Brown on Petruzaleks strong start to the season ... "Jakub is a very clever offensive player with excellent playmaking abilities. Sh has shown terrific anticipation on several occasions, intercepting passes and turning them into scoring chances."

Graham, Cats Stare Down Sidney Crosby
