“Tomáš as a player is approaching the best age, last year he showed he ranks to an absolute top of NHL and if his health endures, he will have another fantastic season. He became the captain’s assisstant, which is a significant reward in NHL. It proves his ice-hockey and character qualities. The trust in him is definite. He never feared responsibility. I think his best years in NHL are ahead of him,“ Robert Spálenka, head of ice-hockey section in Sport Invest, said about Hertl.

Palát also belongs to the key personalities in Tampa Bay where he starts his 8th season and is approaching his 100th goal in NHL. Sobotka plays even his 11th season overseas and is representing colours of Buffalo Sabres.

He’s a self-confident guy whose role is important in our team,“ head coach of Flames Bill Peters spoke higly about Rittich.

Pavel Francouz in Colorado fulfills a role of reliable number two and he can deeply support Avalanche when he is given a chance to play, which he performed at the beginning of 2019/20 season. “My dream came true. I know nothing is for free. Now it depends mainly on me to use every single chance,“ Francouz said.
