Evening World Cup Player Notes (Sep 4)

The Czech Republic have opted not to take some of their remaining NHL talent to replace Tomas Hertl or Radko Gudas, rather they have gone to the KHL for a couple of players, forward Michal Birner and defenseman Tomas Kundratek.

Both players had been drafted in their NHL careers, Birner was taken by St. Louis back in 2004 after a junior career in the OHL, while Kundratek was taken in 2008 by the Rangers.  The 26-year old defenseman was the only one of the two that had seen any NHL experience, having played a combined 30 games over a couple of seasons with the Capitals, but has since gone back to Europe.
