With several of the team’s top players having departed for the professional ranks, the Plymouth Whalers’ Matt Mistele knows it’s his time to step up and fill some pretty big shoes. Fortunately, a mid-season trade last year provided him a pretty good example to follow.

Czech hockey is seemingly losing its talent, or at least that's what most recent drafts, except for the 2012 NHL Draft, seem to indicate. Despite that, the Czech Under-18 national team always manages to have a decent or better showing at the annual Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, which is hosted by the Czech Republic and Slovakia. This year, the team went far and came home with a bronze medal, beating Sweden and Russia along the way.

The next big Swedish gun is not Swedish-born, but he definitely has a lot of Sweden in his veins.
