Jere Karalahti to join Slovan Bratislava

Well, that´s news! According to several sources (, and the Slovan´s official homepage, (where we also learn that Marek Uram has cut his hair...) the team has signed the troubled finnish defenseman for the remainder of the season.
Karalahti´s NHL career ended in 2002, when he was suspended for 6 month for his third violation of the league´s substance abuse policy.

Once more in legal trouble (he could face up to six years in prison for smuggling amphetamines and cocaine from Estonia to Finland) it looks like the skilled defender is trying to get out of the spotlight in his home country by signing with the current leader of the Slovak Extraliga.
