Roman Horak part of the Czech line in Calgary | 02/19/2013 7:34 AM
NewsCoach Bob Hartley has put Roman Horak, Roman Cervenka and Jiri Hudler together to form a "Czeching Line".
ImpactThe three natives of the Czech Republic will hopefully mesh well together. Hudler grew up being a big fan of Horak's dad, also named Roman, who played in Europe his whole career and scored three goals at the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics. "They're both skilled and really smart players, so I'm going to try to fit in and be a young guy who tries to fly around and pass to them and let them create," Horak said. "Obviously, I watched them play, so I know who they are, and I'm just trying to fit. (Cervenka) has been playing the Czech league and in Russia, so I watched him. And they both play for the national team, so whenever there is a world championship or something like that, you can watch that on TV. So I, obviously, saw that they're both great, great players." Horak has a goal and an assist in five games and the Flames are still high on the youngster.

Roman Horak might play on Flames' top line | 02/15/2013 9:48 AM
NewsRoman Horak might get a chance to play alongside Jarome Iginla and Curtis Glencross.
ImpactHorak was called up by the Calgary Flames on Thursday. He has 14 goals and 21 points in 43 AHL games this season, but he had just 11 points in 61 contests with the Flames in 2011-12. Still, this could be a golden opportunity to show what he can do offensively. "It's all a matter of being productive," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "I've watched plenty of games during the work stoppage. I want to look at them and see what they're going to do for us from now on. What they did last year or five years ago, it's all over. It's a new start."
