Panthers popular in Czech Republic Olympic Hockey
Florida may have a considerable presence at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver...at least among the men's squad from the Czech Republic.
Released this morning was the official 60-man roster of hopefuls for next year's tournament. Cats fans will notice more than a few names may ring rather familiar:
- Tomas Vokoun - G
- Alexander Salak - G
- Martin Skoula - D (unsigned, in camp)
- Radek Dvorak - F
- Michael Frolik - F
- Rostislav Olesz - F
(For you history buffs, former Panthers D-man Lukas Krajicek is in the mix as well.)
A notable invitee? Get this: 44 year-old two-time retiree Dominik Hasek (!). That should spice up the trials. Good luck to all of our boys.
Who's a lock - if anyone - for the Czech Republic team?
