Petr Sykora signed his contract today with SC Bern in Switzerland. Signing now official. Can't play in NHL in 12-13 without clearing waivers—

Corey GriffinSykora was mentioned during training camp as someone the Devils might look at to help bolster their forward depth, although Lou Lamoriello threw cold water on the idea of the Devils signing any free agent. I find it hard to believe he didn’t score an NHL offer after scoring 21 goals last season. My guewss is the money/offers in North America weren’t enough to dissuade him from heading to Europe. With Sykora out of the picture and Jason Arnott reportedly too hurt to pass a physical, whatever free agent options the Devils might have considered at some point seem to be dwindling. No pressure, Matt Anderson.
