๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ Vlastimil Bubnรญk: 1931-2015

Former Czech national team winger Vlastimil Bubnรญk, a four-time Olympian and amongst the all-time Olympic hockey points leaders, has passed away at the age of 83 in Brno.

Bubnรญk, a four-time Olympian from 1952-64, won a bronze medal at Innsbruck in 1964, along with a World Championship silver and two bronze medals. Bubnรญk, who captained Czechoslovakia from 1961-64, collected 37 points in 28 career Olympic games, placing him tied for second with Canada’s Harry Watson (and only behind Finland’s Teemu Selรคnne) for the all-time points lead. Bubnรญk held the IHLC on multiple occasions, first winning the title in 1962.

Our condolences go out to the Bubnรญk family, as well as the Czech hockey community, on the loss of this national legend.
