Following a less than stellar season, partially shortened season with the Florida Panthers in which he notched only 25 points (11 goals, 14 assists) in 64 games, Juraj Kolnik signed on with HC Geneve-Servette of the Swiss National League on August 6. Terms could not be found. The Slovak native played 240 NHL games with the Isles and Panthers scoring 46 goals and 49 assists for 95 points. He never really found footing pretty consistent playing time over the last 3 seasons with Florida. The former 4th round, 101st pick in the 1999 NHL draft, Kolnik played only 36 games over 2 seasons with the Isles before being traded in 2003 to Florida.
