Teams to watch in ELH season 2020/21

The 2020/21 season of Czech Extraliga (ELH), the top-tier Czech hockey league will start on September 18. Fourteen teams will compete in the quad round-robin format (two games home, two games away) for spots among the twelve highest-ranked teams which will then advance into the playoffs to determine the national champion.

HC Kometa Brno

Just a month before the start of the new season, Kometa Brno’s biggest star, Tomáš Plekanec, announced his departure from the team. The club management reacted swiftly to this sudden event by signing a contract with experienced Jakub Klepiš, a gold medalist from the 2010 World Championship. However, it is uncertain whether Klepiš can replace such a player like Plekanec; after all, Jakub is already 36 years old.

HC Škoda Plzeň

Unlike other clubs, HC Plzeň, who ranked 5th last season, do not try to hide their economic problems. Fortunately, the team’s head coach is Martin Straka, who is also a co-owner of the club. The two-time gold medalist has experience and connections, which should help him put Plzeň back on its feet.

BK Mladá Boleslav

Last season, Mladá Boleslav conceded the least amount of goals of all playoff teams. Therefore their coach Pavel Patera decided to build a new roster around young players and team’s defensive lineup.

HC Oceláři Třinec

Although Třinec does not have a limitless budget, their actions say different. The club's management wants to take advantage of the postponed NHL season and lures players from overseas. Filip Zadina from Detroit was the first to be welcomed in their roster, soon followed Lukáš Jašek from Vancouver. The runners-up of the previous season are among the main contenders for the 2020/21 ELH title.

Bílí Tygři Liberec

Liberec, reigning ELH champions, are expected to dominate Extraliga again thanks to their aggressive playstyle. However, compared to last season of ELH, no club will be relegated this year, and that might let off the pressure put on teams and players to give their best performance. This season, everything seems possible.
