    I think the hockey world is about to figure out how good Ondrej Kase is! I assume he'll be put on a line with Krejci/Debrusk and proceed to get some points. Happy for him to go to a cup contender and join 2 Czechs (and Vladar/Lauko). Sad he won't be going to the World's!

    More good news. Francouz extended for 2 more years. More surprisingly... So did Frk. He was high on my list of guys I thought would not be in the NHL next year. Both got 2 year, 1 way contracts! Kaut also got an assist in his second game!

    Czech It Out, Czech Hockey Is On The Way Back - Last Word on Hockey

    I don't agree with all of it but it was a good read... I keep saying that we might have a 'bronze generation' coming through youngsters Chytil, Necas, Kaut, Zadina, Hajek and Hronek supported by veteran's Voracek, Krejci and Palat. Toss in our in prime guys - Hertl and Pastrnak and 3 NHL goalies all doing well plus a few young highly rated ones.

    Just that damn D

    woohoo... 4 year contract for Simek. This is good because it means that we have a small handful of Czech D in the NHL next year... Simek, Gudas, Kempny and Hronek all have contracts for next season. Hajek also has a contract but he seems to playing out the string in the AHL. Polak is retired from National Team but hopefully he gets another year. Rutta is UFA after this season. I can't see any next gen Czechs like Has or Kral cracking the NHL next year. Not looking good for Zboril and Masin. Hopefully Kubicek/Klikorka get drafted in the later rounds.

    Vrana is 28th with 25 goals and Kubalik is 16th with 29. 10th overall is Connor McDavid with 31 goals for reference. 3 Czechs in the top 30 for goals is exceptional. My quick look only saw 2 Russians for instance. 2 Finns. 3 Swedes.

    Spacek loaned to ONT, Brickley to MAN - Context with Seeley - LA Kings Insider

    One of my favourite Prospects.. Michal Spacek just got loaned to the LA farm team from the Jet's one. I think this might spell the end of Michal in North America. I could be wrong and hope I am. If I am right, I expect him to be a very good player in whatever European League he ends up in. He was SO CLOSE to a NHL game when he got called up by the Jet's but was kept in the pressbox (pays well) for a few weeks.

    I see Jogi Svejkovsky has a son playing in the WHL...what happened to Jogi to cut his career so short?

    Is his son a prospect?
