The Lancers called him Dan Yaha. 
The Sockers called him Dan Jaha.

I'm not sure about the name on the back.  I would expect an 80 Lancers jersey to have a name plate.  Also the font on the name would be different.
The Lancers referred to "Jaha" as "Yaha."  See the team photo above.  The Sockers referred to him as Jaha.  Dragoslav is Yugoslavian.  I'm guessing he is Serbian.  The Ja sound in Serbian sounds like Ya. The alphabet is Cyrillic so, either the Ja or Ya transcription to English would be logical.
