Juraj Šimek (born September 29, 1987) is a Slovak-Swiss professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Genève-Servette HC of the Swiss National League A.

Playing careerEdit

Prior to moving to North America, Šimek played in Switzerland between the junior and senior (Nationalliga A and B) leagues with Bern, Kloten, and EHC Biel. After a strong season with Kloten's junior team in 2005–06, posting 68 points in 45 games, Šimek was chosen in the sixth round, 167th overall, by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Selected by the Brandon Wheat Kings with their first choice in the 2006 Canadian Hockey League (CHL) Import Draft, Šimek made his North American debut in 2006–07 with the Wheat Kings. He scored at a near point-per-game pace, with 57 points in 58 games and received his first NHL contract in the off-season, on July 23, 2007, with the Canucks.

Signed with the Canucks, he made his AHL debut with Vancouver's minor league affiliate, the Manitoba Moose, in 2007–08 and scored 17 points in 66 games. On October 6, 2008, he was traded along with Lukáš Krajíček to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Michel Ouellet and Shane O'Brien.

On December 9, 2010, Tampa Bay traded Šimek to the Boston Bruins in exchange for minor league forward Levi Nelson.[1]

International playEdit

Šimek has played for the Swiss national junior team twice at the World Junior Championships.
