Kaberle is one of four Czech players making their third Olympic appearance and he will be looked upon as one of the leaders on the blueline. In 2006, the Czechs defeated the Russians to win the bronze medal. Kaberle commented on winning the bronze: "Every time you get to touch a medal (it's memorable) obviously you want gold, but at least we beat the Russians for the bronze. It would be nice to do it again."

At the 2008 World Championships he led all defensemen with nine assists (1-9-10) and was selected to the All-Star Team. He won a gold medal at the 2005 World Championships and his seven assists in 2003 led the team and tied for fifth in the tournament.

His father, Frantisek Sr., played at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics and in 2006, he played alongside his older brother Frantisek Jr.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
