Knoxville, TENN. (18 September 2018) – Ice Bears Head Coach Jeff Carr announced Tuesday the signing of Czech defenseman Vojtech Zemlicka.

Zemlicka, 23, worked his way through the leagues last season, playing only 8 games in the Czech3 league and 18 for the Carolina Thunderbirds (FHL) before joining the Mississippi RiverKings (SPHL), for the second half of their 2017-2018 campaign. With Mississippi, Zemlicka put up 17 points in 34 games from the defensive end of the ice.

“Zemlicka is super versatile and could benefit the team in a number of ways,” said Carr. “He is relentless on defense – a real thorn in your side when he’s on his game.”

Scoring half a point per game with the RiverKings, Zemlicka could be a great fit for this year’s Ice Bear roster. Though he’s another in a long line of defensive skaters, Vojtech’s flexibility could provide the extra edge needed to make this year’s team.
