Havlat made his Olympic debut as a 20-year-old in 2002, often playing on a line with his childhood idol Jaromir Jagr. Unable to play in 2006 due to a shoulder injury, he will bring eight seasons of NHL experience to the Olympics this time around. His three goals in 2002 led the team in scoring.

At the 2004 World Cup, he led his team and finished tied for third in tournament scoring with six points (3-3-6). He had a goal and an assist in the semi-final game against Canada, but the Czech Republic fell one goal short of the final, losing 4-3 in overtime.

Havlat got his first taste of gold at the 2000 World Championships helping the Czech Republic defeat Slovakia 5-3 for the win.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
