Rozsival celebrates with Cup in Czech Republic

VLAŠIM, Czech Republic -- A year ago, defenseman Michal Rozsival was an unrestricted free agent considering his options after 11 seasons in the NHL. He chose to sign with the Chicago Blackhawks because he felt there was a very good chance he could become an NHL champion.

It turns out he was right. He celebrated his first Stanley Cup win with the Blackhawks in June and on Wednesday added to those memories when he brought the Cup to his home in the Czech Republic.

"It's great to see the Cup again," Rozsival told reporters in Vlašim, a small town located in the central region of the country.

Frolik welcomes Stanley Cup to Czech Republic

KLADNO, Czech Republic -- Since being involved in a draft-day trade at the end of June, Michael Frolik has been a member of the Winnipeg Jets. But Tuesday, the Stanley Cup champion was a Chicago Blackhawk for one more day.

The Stanley Cup arrived in the Czech wing's hometown of Kladno, about 25 miles west of Prague, and its suburban village, Kamenné Žehrovice, to honor one of the two Czech countrymen who celebrated a championship in June with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Wednesday, the trophy will appear in the central village of Vlašim, the hometown of Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival.

"It's a big day for me. I am definitely enjoying it," Frolik said after the Cup arrived in the Czech Republic from Chicago. "I came to the airport to welcome the Cup by myself, then we brought it to my house. I am glad we had it at home first and could take some pictures with my family."

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
