Hometown: Burnaby, British Columbia.
Position: Center/right wing.
‘95-96 stats: 23 goals, 40 assists, 6 game-winning goals.
Local school: Spokane Falls CC.
Draft status: Colorado Avalanche (6th round, ‘95).
Quick check: At his best with a game on the line, Cirjak - like his hometown buddy Cardarelli - is tough on the power play, shooting or passing. With 13 power-play goals, 16 power-play assists and 1 short-handed goal last year, Surge returns as one of the league’s feared forwards.
Coach’s comment: “The next step is to play at a consistently high level. He has the potential to do that.”
