"Deník Sport has shared the passing of former Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Roman Čechmánek. The goaltender was 52 years old and had previously played 212 games in the NHL, after being drafted in the sixth round — 171st overall — in the 2000 NHL Draft. That was 34 spots before Henrik Lundqvist heard his name called by the New York Rangers.

RIP.  

 

I remember him being a talented yet inconsistent goaltender when it mattered most but I still wish him and his loved ones nothing but the best during these difficult times.

“And he loved to stop pucks with his head.”

 

Play by play guys used to call it the cranium carom. Other things I remember about him were the best unibrow in hockey and the way he’d tease shooters with his huge five-hole then close it lightning fast.
 

RIP.
