Updates: 24.01.2022 06:37

New York – Czech hockey striker Jakub Voráček did not avert his home loss of Columbus 1: 2 with Ottawa with his 26th assist in the season. The native of Kladno scored 765th career in the NHL and equaled Václav Prospal in fourth place in the historical ranking of Czech hockey players.

In the 20th minute, Voráček prepared a balancing goal for Sean Kuraly. The Czech striker was given a lot of space in the right circle after Zach Werenský’s pass, but instead of a shot from an ideal position, he still chose the pass and challenged Kuraly to score the sixth goal of the season. After a great event, Voráček scored the 22nd first assist of the season and continues to stay in the elite trio of the entire NHL. Only Jonathan Huberdeau (24) and Nathan MacKinnon (23) are better off.

The 32-year-old winger has scored 27 points for one goal and twenty-six assists so far this season, and is the fourth most productive of the Czechs. He also finished fourth among Czech hockey players in historical statistics. In the 1005th match in the basic part of the NHL, he scored the 548th assist and with a total of seven hundred and sixty-five points he equaled the action of Václav Prospal. Forty Canadian points are missing for the third Milan Hejduk Voráček.

The Czech hockey players did not succeed in the remaining matches of Sunday’s program.
