Czech ice hockey squad mulls NHL players

In ice hockey, the Czech squad playing in the world championships in Russia are weighing up the possibilities of calling up NHL players Redek Faksa and Aleš Hemský. Both the Dallas Stars forward, Faksa, and winger, Hemský, ended their NHL seasons after a defeat on Wednesday night. The Czech team currently in Moscow still has the chance of adding two extra players to the squad. If picked, Faksa would be making his debut but Hemský is an experienced player with the national team. The Czech have so far won all three of their opening games and face Norway in the afternoon game.
