Petr Čajánek (Czech pronunciation: [ˈpɛtr̩ ˈtʃajaːnɛk] ( )) (born August 18, 1975 in Gottwaldov, Czechoslovakia) is a Czech centre currently playing for SKA Saint Petersburg of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Draft[edit]

In the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, he was drafted 253rd overall, in the 7th round by the St. Louis Blues. He was then signed to an NHL contract.

Career[edit]

Petr Čajánek played for HC Zlín from 1993 to 2002. In the 2001-02 season, he was the leading scorer in the Czech Extraliga.

On February 26, 2007, Čajánek was placed on waivers by the St. Louis Blues, which would have effectively allowed any other NHL club to sign him. When no other NHL teams tendered Čajánek an offer, the Blues re-signed him to a league-minimum contract, and added him back to their roster. Though he was placed on waivers, the 2006-07 season was his best, putting up a career high 48 points, good for 3rd on the Blues.

On October 21, 2007, Čajánek signed a 1-year, $900,000 deal to play for Ak Bars Kazan in the Russian Super League for the rest of the season.
