Czech up - 01-15-13

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

This is a list we like to recycle every time the Penguins have a Czech player on the roster.

Once Tomas Vokoun (above) plays in a game for the Penguins, he will continue a streak spanning three decades of having at least one Czech player on the team's roster during the season.

Beginning with an 18-year-old Jaromir Jagr and veteran forward Jiri Hrdina during the club's first Stanley Cup title season in 1990-91, the Penguins have had at least one Czech player in their employ every season since:
