from David Isaac of Flyer Files,
According to a report from Sport.cz, Flyers winger Jake Voracek was not injured when he crashed his Ferrari into a truck in his hometown of Kladno, Czech Republic at 11:30 a.m. Kladno time.
Pictures of the car (tranlated) on Sport.cz’s website sure make it look like Voracek, 23, was lucky to walk away from the accident with no injuries, if that is indeed the case.
According to a Google translation of the report, Voracek was speeding down the road when a truck coming from the opposite direction slowed down to turn left.
added 11:54am, Paul Holmgren issues a statement...
“I spoke with Jake this morning. He was involved in a car accident in the Czech Republic. Although his car did suffer damage, there were no injuries. Jake is fine.”
The Philadelphia Flyers have locked up one of their own restricted free agents, signing forward Jakub Voracek to a four-year, $17 million contract.
The deal was first reported by Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia.
Voracek, 22, scored 18 goals and 49 points in 78 games with the Flyers last season.
Voracek was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 1st round (seventh overall) in 2007 and was acquired by the Flyers in a trade for Jeff Carter.

What do you think?
I wont be wasting anyone’s time bashing the on-again, off-again play of Jakub Voracek throughout his career. The Flyers have done a good job in recent years of getting players in situations where they have a lot to prove, and its worked out quite well for them. They find themselves in a similar position with Voracek, and there is ample reason to be optimistic about his upcoming season.
