Červenka joins Jagr at Omsk

The Czech ice hockey forward Roman Červenka is leaving Slavia Prague to join compatriot Jaromír Jágr at Omsk. The most productive player in the Czech elite league last season has signed a two-year deal with the Russian club, it said on its website on Tuesday. Červenka, who is 24, was a member of the Czech squad that won the World Championship at the weekend. He had said he planned to move to the NHL, but received a more lucrative offer from Omsk.
