Ask Jaroslav Halak if he’s sampled any of the local cuisine St. Louis is noted for—like toasted ravioli and barbecue ribs—and he quickly says no.
“I haven’t eaten those,” Halak told NHL.com. “Actually, my girlfriend, she’s a great cook, so she’s cooking, always cooking something, and she’s trying to prepare some Slovak meals all the time and trying to make it feel like home.”
Though some might argue Halak is missing out on some of the city’s finer things, whatever makes him comfortable enough to feel like home only can be good for the Blues.
Halak never had been in a stable, starting role at the NHL level, having spent most of his early career shuttling between Montreal and the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs. However, that changed last summer when the Canadiens dealt the 26-year-old to the Blues. St. Louis quickly signed him to a four-year contract and installed him as the undisputed starter.
