In ice hockey, Czech forward Martin Erat has signed a one year contract to play in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) with Russian club Omsk. The 34 year old, after 13 years competing in the NHL, has been without a club since the end of the last season when he played for Arizona. The new deal means that there will now be four Czech players on the Avangard Omsk roster. Erat was in the Czech squad at the World Championships being hosted by Prague and Ostrava earlier this year.
