NHL IN PRAGUE 2010
Boston Bruins and Phoenix Coyotes will be played in Prague
Prague, Feb 9 (CTK) - The opening games of the next season of the NHL ice hockey series between Boston Bruins and Phoenix Coyotes will be played in Prague on October 9 and October 10, Miroslav Cernousek, one of the Czech organisers of the event, announced Tuesday.
The opening games of the NHL season were played in Prague already in 2008 when Tampa Bay Lightning met NY Rangers.
Apart from Prague, NHL opening games will be also played in Helsinki and Stockholm in October.
The fight between Boston and Phoenix will be attractive for local fans also because seven Czech players are members of the two teams now.
At present, Czech forwards Robert Lang, Radim Vrbata, Petr Prucha and Martin Hanzal and defender Zbynek Michalek play with Phoenix.
Forwards David Krejci and Vladimir Sobotka play for Boston whose captain is Slovak Zdeno Chara, which may be a reason for Slovak fans to come to Prague for the two games.
The overseas NHL was first played in Europe in 2007 when Anaheim and Los Angeles fought in London. In 1997, NHL was first played outside Canada and the United States, in Tokyo.
