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.
