    Czech Republic Misc. Czech Hockey News

    Sparta Praha has formed an agreement with HC Beroun to be its farm team.

    The Czech Extraliga is moving towards to the Russian model where the top league clubs cooperate with 2nd tier clubs (either as partner or along a more hierarchical farm team model), hokej.cz reports. There are also such tendencies in the Swedish Elitserien, but here the progress is slower.

    Sparta Praha has negotiated with Beroun for quite some time. The deal leaves Sparta an opportunity to call up/send down players from/to Beroun --an arrangement that might actually benefit Beroun. In addition, the two clubs will cooperate closely on their youth programmes with shared coaches etc.

    Beroun has played 17 seasons in the 1. liga, and the deal is not really surprising as the two clubs have always had close ties.

    Other Extraliga clubs that have made agreements with 1. liga teams include Slavia Praha (Havlikov Brod), Mlada Boleslav (Vrchlabi), Liberec (Jizerou) and Kometa Brno (Znojmo).

    it's Marek who is funny :) once I have seen he had pink blade on stick instead of black or white, also his mouthpiece was pink or orange... crazy boy... I really love his style, he is fast and dynamic, and if his stick is broken or something, he plays with legs like a footballer and he is able to keep the puck either without stick - which is so funny when you see three other players fighting for that :D

    HC Zlin has found a new main sponsor, PSG, a construction firm, and will from next season officially be named PSG Zlin - the club's logo will be changed slightly. To add to the confusion, the youth team will still be called RI Okna Zlin since the club still has a partnership with the old sponsor (RI Okna).

    The new arena at Carlsbad (Karlovy Vary) will be inaugurated 19 June. Price: US$64 mio., the most expensive investment project in the history of the spa town. HC Karlovy Vary will lease the arena at a cost of $670,000 a year - huge cost by Czech standards.

    Frantisek Vyborny was surprisingly sacked today by Sparta Praha after four consecutive defeats. Also assistant coach Hynek was fired.
    David Volek, until now coach of farm team Beroun and Milos Holan, former Zvolen (SVK) coach are the new coaches' duo.
    "It was a very difficult decision - said Sparta president Viliam Sivek - Vyborny was the most successful Sparta coach. He gave us 3 titles."

    Pavel Hynek is a new coach of HC Energie Karlovy Vary. He replaced Josef Paleček.
    Bo gdyby, ach gdyby wszystko na tym świecie dało się rostrzygać na lodowiskach, w trzech tercjach, kijem i krążkiem, to nie tylko wszak kanadyjskim zawodowcom z NHL, nie tylko wiarołomnym antysocjalistycznym Czechom, ale całemu światu, ba, nawet duszmanom z Pandższiru, Heratu i Kandaharu spuściłaby tęgi a druzgocący wpierdol hokejowa reprezentacja ZSRR, a w jej składzie Ragulin, Fetisow, Kasatonow oraz, bladź, Kapustin, Golikow i Malcew.

    Kladno coach Zdeněk Müller offered his resignation due to team's poor results, but club management decided to continue with him: "Two years ago our patience paid and we believe that this is now. We're playing better than two years ago." said GM Otakar Černý
