Sunday, the Czech Republic faced off against Team Austria at the IIHF World Championship.
In the third period Jakub Vrana scored the team’s eighth goal in a shutout win. Capitals teammate Dmitrij Jaskin had the primary assist and the Dallas Stars’ Radek Faksa had the secondary assist.
The play started with an Austrian mistake, with Faksa getting a takeaway. Jaskin redirected the puck to Vrana who showcased his speed in a sprint to the Austrian goal.
Vrana also displayed his accuracy putting the puck past goaltender Lukas Herzog.
The two teammates fist-bumped after the goal.
Jakub Vrana is having himself one heck of a championship. This is Vrana’s fifth point in six games, four of which are goals. He scored on his first shift of his first game, performed a tongue-waggling celly after his second, scored with an incredible diving goal for his third, and his only assist thus far was a thing of beauty.
Meanwhile, Jaskin has also been garnering praise for his performance, registering two goals and two assists in six games while bolstering the team’s penalty kill.
The Czech Republic’s last game of the preliminary round is on May 21 against Team Switzerland.
