Honoring a fallen teammate

As Emma wrote in her Worlds wrapup last month, Team Slovakia won silver and paid tribute to Pavol Demitra, a former teammate who was killed in the tragic plane crash that took the lives of the entire Yaroslavl Lokomotiv team last fall. When the team returned to Slovakia, Tomas Kopecky visited Demitra’s grave and brought along his silver medal.

The following video is in Slovak, but you’ll get the sentiment. Grab tissues before you watch.
