The Czech’s announced their World Junior roster for the upcoming tournament in Malmo, Sweden. In the 2013 edition of the games, the Czech’s looked solid in the round robin, beating Latvia, Finland and Switzerland, placing them in the quarter-finals. Unfortunately, they would face the eventual gold medal champions from the States, who pummeled them quite easily 7-0. Highlighting the team in this year’s tournament is Radek Faksa, the 2012 Dallas Stars draft pick who will be competing in his third World Junior tournament, as well as Jakub Vrana and David Pastrnak, both who are looking to be selected early in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
