Petr Nedved has retired from hockey

Petr Nedved has retired from hockey at the age of 42. For a man who's professional hockey career began at age 19 after being selected second overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft, life may seem a bit pale for a while. "Hockey was everything to me," Nedved told Roman Jedlicka, "I don't know if I will ever find something so beautiful as hockey."By Handshakes...

Carol Schram: Vancouver Canucks: 4 Play for Gold, No Medal for Kesler, Torts Backs Sweden

Earlier in the Olympics, I talked about the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer, when Petr Nedved suited up for Canada and won a silver medal. That was also the last time Canada and Sweden met in an Olympic final, where Peter Forsberg scored his famous shootout goal on Corey Hirsch to capture gold for the Swedes. Canucks fans could have slightly divided loyalties on Sunday. I know I...

Carol Schram: Vancouver Canucks: Olympic History - Petr Nedved, Luo Starts Friday

There were no upsets on Day 2 of the Olympic men's hockey tournament. Team USA had the most dominant performance, and Ryan Kesler had a great game in his group's 7-1 win over Slovakia. He tallied a goal, an assist, four shots, was a team-high plus-4, and went 11 for 13 on faceoffs while playing more than any other U.S. forward—what else is new? Russia and Canada...

Anderson: Team Czech: Sweden cruises against slow-moving Czechs

An honest disclaimer: I don’t know what to tell you about the Czech Republic’s chances at the Winter Games in Sochi, but I’m going to try. The Czech squad is a riddle wrapped in an enigma, and packaged around a hard candy shell. Or something like that, I think. They have young guns, they have veterans, they even have a Petr Nedved. My God, they have a Petr Nedved!...

Petr Nedved would like you to get off his lawn

Petr Nedved is about 60 years old, but still playing in the Czech Republic. He's back in the Olympics, and playing for the first time with the Czech Republic, after defecting to Canada in his youth and playing for them in his younger days. It's an interesting story, but don't expect Petr Nedved to retell it. He just wants you to get off his lawn, and doesn't understand...

One More Shot At Gold

from Karen Crouse of the New York Times, Old Men Winter will descend on the Sochi Games this week, leaving the men’s ice hockey tournament with a dusting of gray. The 12-team competition features five players in their 40s, including Petr Nedved of the Czech Republic and Sandis Ozolinsh of Latvia, who bumped into each other in the athletes’ village the other day at that soda...

Czech Republic announces Olympic roster, shockingly includes Petr Nedved

The Czech Republic announced their Olympic roster today and there were no shortage of surprises! The show stopper was their selection of 42 year old former Canuck Petr Nedved, who is currently playing in the Czech league. After seeing that, I immediately searched the rest of the roster for Frank Kucera, Roman Cechmanek and Robert Kron. Luckily for Czech fans, they were nowhere to...
