CZECHS RELEASE THEIR ROSTER FOR THE 2022 WINTER OLYMPICS

JAN 13, 2022  (12H00)      COOPER GODIN
The Czechs have released their roster for the upcoming 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China. Their roster includes several familiar names to hockey fans, most notably, former Boston Bruin David Krejci, who will likely play a key leadership role for his country.

"We have an experienced team with an average age of around 30," said head coach Filip Pesan, noting the difference between this team and the one he took to Riga for last year's World Championship. "We could have used more leaders in Riga, so this time we're depending more on experience than on youth."

"I believe we have chosen the right chemistry," said General Manager Petr Nedved, who noted that changes to the roster for medical reasons are still possible for another 11 days. "(Filip) Chlapik and (Lukas) Jasek are among the players who are ready in case of changes that may still occur. The same is true, for example, of Milan Gulas, who is on the broader list. The final point will not occur until 24 January."
