    Zdeno Chara named Captain of Team Slovakia

    Joe Makarski February 16, 2010

    Boston Bruins defenseman and Norris Trophy winner, Zdeno Chara, confirmed to bruins.nhl.com that he will in fact be wearing the “C” on his Slovakian Olympic jersey. A Captain with the Bruins and now for his home country, Chara is one of 13 Slovakian-born NHL players representing their county at this year’s 2010 Winter Olympics. Big Zee and Slovakia – along with Black-and-Gold teammate Miroslav Satan – open-up their Olympic competition against David Krejci and Medal-contending Team Czech Republic on Thursday, at 3pm EST.

    *Thanks to the Google traslator and a heads-up reader; ‘Captain’ is translated to ‘Kapitán’ in Slovak.  So Chara should  be wearing a “K” on his chest, and not a “C'”.
