Vokoun led the Czech Republic to the bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, posting a 2.46 goals-against average in seven games played.
His spectacular gold medal-winning performance at the 2005 World Championships, (.953 save percentage, 1.08 goals against average and 7-1-0 record), including a 29 save shutout in the gold medal game, earned him the Best Goaltender Award for the tournament.
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.
