Hockey: KHL’s Lev Prague fire head coach

The Czech Republic’s sole participant in the Kontinental Hockey League, Lev Praha, fired their head coach Josef Jandač on Saturday after a series of seven defeats, most recently 2:3 to CSKA Moscow in Prague on Thursday. The club’s general manager Normunds Sejejs, said Josef Jandač had played an important role in the build-up to Lev’s first season in the KHL but the club’s recent results were too disappointing. Lev Praha will be managed by Mr Jandač’s assistants until the international break. The club has also signed St Petersburg, and Czech international goalie Petr Štěpánek, to improve its performance.
