World Cup Of Hockey: Team Czech Republic and Team Sweden Rosters Announced

The Czech Republic announces the first Calgary Flames player to take part in the WCH.



More rosters have been announced and we have some good news for Flames fans who will be watching – Michael Frolik has made the initial Czech Republic roster!

This is the first Calgary player that has been named to a World Cup Of Hockey team. And I think there will be more.

For now, here are the newest roster announcements.

Team Czech Republic:

G Petr Mrazek, Detroit Red Wings
G Michal Neuvirth, Philadelphia Flyers
G Ondrej Pavelec, Winnipeg Jets

D Radko Gudas, Philadelphia Flyers
D Michal Kempny, Avangard Omsk (KHL)
D Roman Polak, San Jose Sharks
D Andrej Sustr, Tampa Bay Lightning

F Michael Frolik, Calgary Flames
F Martin Hanzal, Arizona Coyotes
F Tomas Hertl, San Jose Sharks
F David Krejci, Boston Bruins
F Ondrej Palat, Tampa Bay Lightning
F David Pastrnak, Boston Bruins
F Tomas Plekanec, Montreal Canadiens
F Vladimir Sobotka, Avangard Omsk (KHL)
F Jakub Voracek, Philadelphia Flyers

With names like Pastrnak, Voracek, Frolik, and Hertl, other teams will have a hard time against a Team Czech Republic if their defense is lacking.

Team Sweden are:

G Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers
G Jacob Markstrom, Vancouver Canucks

D Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Arizona Coyotes
D Victor Hedman, Tampa Bay Lightning
D Niklas Hjalmarsson, Chicago Blackhawks
D Erik Karlsson, Ottawa Senators
D Niklas Kronwall, Detroit Red Wings
D Anton Stralman, Tampa Bay Lightning

F Nicklas Backstrom, Washington Capitals
F Loui Eriksson, Boston Bruins
F Filip Forsberg, Nashville Predators
F Gabriel Landeskog, Colorado Avalanche
F Daniel Sedin, Vancouver Canucks
F Henrik Sedin, Vancouver Canucks
F Alexander Steen, St. Louis Blues
F Henrik Zetterberg, Detroit Red Wings

With a stacked defensive team, Team Sweden will be hard to beat. And with a forceful offensive lineup, I think Team Sweden will make quite an impact during the WCH.
