The Legendary Former Chelsea and Arsenal Goalkeeper Shines Up his Skates for EIHL Debut
Petr Cech has been playing semi-professional hockey for a few years now in the United Kingdom. He has been a fan of the game since childhood and was able to live out a dream by playing in his first professional game with the Elite Ice Hockey League.
The Plzen native was on loan to the Belfast Giants this weekend as they were dealing with some injury issues. The 41-year-old made his debut with less then five minutes left in the game against the Glasgow Clan and made one save for the Giants, who won the game.
