Czech Olympic Hockey Team Announced

On Monday, the Czech Republic Ice Hockey Federation released their 26-man roster for the Pyeongchang Olympics next month and there are a few recognizable names on the list, but we haven't seen them in a little while.

The most notable player on the list is Martin Erat, who we haven't seen since the 2015 season, or possibly Roman Cervenka, who had a brief stint with the Calgary Flames.  By my count, only 12 of these players were drafted by NHL teams, at one point or another, and only a handful have any NHL experience, so when we go to draft, the Czechs will be a lot of crap shoots for our pool teams.

Of course, the bulk of the players are playing over in Europe and most of them should be fairly familiar with each other by now.
