Roman Cervenka impressed his teammates in his NHL debut Saturday.

Cervenka is 27 and has played his entire career in Europe where he was a star. "He's got a great first two steps," linemate Mattthew Stajan said of Cervenka. "He reads the play really well. Look at (Lee Stempniak's) goal. The play he made for that to happen - I don't know if a lot of guys saw it, but he lifted their defenseman's stick. If he doesn't do that, Jay Bouwmeester never gets the puck . . . and who knows? That's just great hockey sense that a lot of people might not see." If Cervenka is available in your pool, he will make a nice pickup at this time.
