After a terrific year in the Czech junior league, Roman arrived in North America via the 2006 CHL import draft, in which he was selected fifth overall by the Spokane Chiefs. The native of Ostrava, Czech Republic posted modest numbers in his rookie campaign, to the tune of 48 points in 70 games, good for fifth on the club. He saw some time on the power play, where he scored three of his four goals, and was bounced around the lines in even strength situations.

2007-08: Roman built off of his rookie season for Spokane (WHL).  He upped his plentiful amount of assists to 46, which is good for second on the team, and started finding his shot, to the tune of 15 goals (up from four).  Roman had a tremendous playoffs as he helped lead the Chiefs to a Memorial Cup championship; he led the club in assists (11) and points (20) in 21 games.

2008-09: Roman split time between the Spokane Chiefs(WHL) and HC Vitkovice of the Czech league. In 32 games in the WHL, Roman scored 10 goals and 22 assists. He also played in 12 playoff games, scoring once and adding 4 assists. Back home, Roman scored 3 goals and added 6 assists in 26 games with the Men’s club. He picked up 4 points in 4 games with their U20 Club.

2009-10: Roman stayed in the Czech Republic, splitting time between three clubs. He played in 10 games with HC Vitkovice’s U20 squad, scoring 9 goals and adding 17 assists in just 10 games. He moved up to HC Vitkovice’s main squad, picking up just 3 points in 26 games. He was loaned to HC Havirov, where he played in the second division. He scored 1 goals and added 6 assists in 11 games with his new club.

2010-11: Hopping from one side of the pond to the other every year is probably not what Ondrej Roman had in mind, but he finally landed in the AHL in 2010-11.  The Czech import played in 72 games, registering 14 assists and 22 points in what was a fairly mundane season for Roman.  He played up and down in the lineup and was sometimes used as a winger as opposed to center.  He didn’t provide the offensive spark for the defensive-minded team and his more-technical/less-physical style saw him scratched throughout most of Texas’ abbreviated playoffs.

Talent Analysis

Quick playmaking forward (can play center and wing) with slick hands.  Not the most beautiful skater in the world but he can move in quick bursts.  Smooth playmaker with very good vision.  Reticent shooter that prefers the pretty play to the shot.  Decent in the dot and has shown flashes of quality defensive play.  Not a very physical player and his size prevents him from penetrating high traffic areas with regularity.


Will return to the AHL in 2011-12.  Roman was dealt to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Andelo Esposito.  

Potential: Longshot 2nd/3rd line tweener playmaking forward, like a less talented version of Ladislav Nagy (in his last NHL seasons).

Denver University Week in Review

by Christa Moore

One of the biggest match ups in the WCHA this weekend was #3 Denver University Vs #7 Colorado College. This arch rival, home-and-home series would be DU’s biggest test of the season yet.

Friday night’s game in Colorado Springs was a bizarre one. Even though DU slightly dominated the first period with a couple of nice hits, it was CC that took the early lead on a power play goal from Matt Stewart. Each team had two power plays and shots were even at nine a piece.

Period two consisted of two goals, two non-goals and a whole mess of penalties.
The first goal was an unassisted,come from behind the net goal from DU’s Jeff Drummond. Goal number two was an impossible angle goal from DU’s David Neale, also unassisted. Neither goal was scored on the power play even though both teams racked up a total of 44 minutes in the box.

DU’s captain Brian Vines had a goal called off after it was determined that he kicked in the puck and a goal from CC was waved off because the net had moved before the puck crossed the line. Shots on goal were 13 for DU and 9 for CC.

The third period was very chippy but a bit more disciplined. It looked like DU was going to wrap it up with a stellar break away goal from Connor James, but it too was wave off with a late interference call. With less than 5 minutes left, CC scored which sent the game into overtime.

Overtime was a bit timid with neither team wanting to make a mistake. With a pile of people in front of the net, DU’s Aaron Mackenzie’s slapped one off of a CC player and into the net for Read more»
