This will be Rozsival’s first Olympic games when he dresses up later this week for the Czech Republic. Rozsival has had his playing time managed all season long with the Hawks carrying 2 extra defenseman to keep Rozsival rested and ready for the Stanley Cup run come April. I was kind of surprised that Rozsival made the team but it’s an honor that Rozsival has never had during his career so nobody can blame him for taking his skills to Sochi.
Rozsival has some sneaky offensive skills but they usually don’t show up on the stat line on a nightly basis, but when he has his A game he is a pretty effective offensive player. So with that being said we are setting his over/under at no goals and 2 assists for the Sochi Hockey Tournament.
