Goaltender Vokoun ready to help Czechs at ice hockey World Championship

The ice hockey goaltender Tomáš Vokoun has said that he will play for the Czech Republic in May’s World Championship in Germany. Vokoun, who is 33, had previously said February’s Olympic Games in Vancouver would be his last international tournament. The goalie said he wanted to help coach Vladimír Růžička and the whole of Czech hockey. By contrast, forward Jiří Hudler, who was left out of the squad for Vancouver, has said he would turn down a call-up for the World Championship.
