The Czech Republic’s 2014 Olympic men’s hockey roster, which the program released on Monday, features 17 current NHL players and eight overseas pucksters. Many of the latter have built a global familiarity with their own previous stints in North America.

Winners of gold in 1998 and bronze in 2006, the Czechs hope to carry on a pattern of medaling once every two Olympic tournaments. They can go about that by properly coalescing their allotment of longtime veterans, certified big-game performers and hungry, skillful newbies.

Here is a breakdown of the country’s 14 forwards, eight defensemen and three goalies and how the coaching staff may distribute them in an effort to whip up a winning formula.

 

Unless otherwise indicated, all statistics for this report were found via NHL.com and are through games of Sunday, January 5.
