Tomáš PLEKANEC (Montreal CANADIENS)
We are grateful to Tomas PLEKANEC (the famous Czech player for the Montreal CANADIENS and the captain of Czech National team) who has been our patron for 10 years. He has played more than 1000 NHL games and scored more than 600 points. He was participant of 10 World Championships and has won 1 silver and two bronze medals. He has also participated in the OLYMPIC GAMES at both Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014. In addition, he was the captain of Czech team at the World Cup of Hockey in 2016. Whilst being a talented and impressive hockey player, he is still also really nice person who has spent days with participants at our events. We hope that you get the chance to meet him again in the future.
The patron of GOALIE ACADEMY starting this year:
Roman WILL (BÍLÍ TYGŘI Liberec)
Roman Will first met SportsEvents when he arrived as a participant of the FRANCOIS ALLAIRE GOALIE SCHOOL. Francois was so impressed by Roman that as the goalie coach for the Colorado AVALANCHE that he arranged for Roman to sign a contract with the AVALANCHE, and appear in an NHL game. Before the start of the 2016/17 season, he moved to Liberec, the Czech Champions. Soon he was the starting goalie for the White Tigers. He has dominated the statistics of the Extraliga and was chosen for the national team for the first time.
Roman still works closely with SportsEvents and we have some collaborations planned, so we are certain that you will meet him at one of our events very soon.
