In other hockey news, the new coach of the national Czech squad Vladimír Růžička has said he will hold a spot open on the roster for star player Jaromír Jágr at the upcoming Ice Hockey World Championships. He made clear he was not pressuring the 42-year-old to take a final decision yet on whether he will play at the tournament next month in Belarus.
