Handzuš was not able to score any points in the NHL match even though he spent 19:18 minutes on the ice, the Sme daily wrote on its website. Handzuš, 34, a native of Banská Bystrica, will be able to join the Slovak national team in its preparations for the ICWC even before the event begins on April 29.
