Phoenix double up with Czech forwards

Manchester Phoenix have added two Czech forwards to their EPL squad.

Jakub Langhammer moves to Britain having iced over 450 times in the Czech Extraliga for Sparta Prague, Ceske Budejovice, Hradec Kralove and Slavia Prague, while Roman Malinik has played over 300 games in Czech 2.

Langhammer has also featured in the Western Hockey League with the Spokane Chiefs and has spent the last two seasons playing in Germany.

His accomplished career has brought him two Extraliga championship medals, four appearances in the Czech senior national team and representative honours at U17, U18 and U20 levels.

Malinik played his junior career for HC Vitkovice at U18 and U20, going on to make three appearances in the Czech Extraliga.

He spent two seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with Baie-Comeu Drakkar, before returning home to play the last two years of his junior career with Vitkovice.

Malinik has since gone on to feature for a variety of teams in the Czech second tier.
