Goaltender Pavelec back in frame for Denmark game at hockey Worlds

07-05-2013

Goaltender Ondřej Pavelec has recovered from an ankle injury and will be fit to play for the Czech Republic in their next game at the Ice Hockey World Championship in Sweden, a meeting with Denmark on Thursday. While Pavelec’s replacement, Alexander Salák, has been praised for his performances, the team have been disappointing so far; since beating Belarus in their opening game at the tournament, the Czechs have lost to Sweden and Switzerland and have only scored five goals in total.
