Vitek Vanecek Bio

Vanecek, a second-round pick (No. 39) in the 2014 NHL Draft, was the second Czech Republic-born goaltender ever selected by the Capitals, following Michal Neuvirth (2006, No. 34).

He signed a three-year, entry-level contract July 15, 2014, but played the 2014-15 season in the Czech Republic. He had a 1.50 goals-against average and .943 save percentage in two games in the Czech Extraliga, the country's top professional league, and a 2.24 GAA and .925 save percentage in 20 games with HC Benatky nad Jizerou in the Czech second division. Vanecek also had a 4.31 GAA and .829 save percentage in three games for the sixth-place Czech Republic at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.
