Radim Vrbata RW PHO 2 Months

Radim Vrbata registered three goals in his last four games before the Olympic break.

He had one goal in 17 contests before that. "Those games before I had the same chances or maybe even better chances, and they wouldn't go in in the situation it was 1-0 or 2-1, so you know the goal would help the team to a 3-1 lead or a deciding goal," Vrbata said. "So hopefully they will start going in again." He can become an unrestricted free agent this summer and he's unclear on what will happen with the Coyotes. Vrbata wasn't invited to take part in the Winter Olympics, so he'll use the time off to rest.

His 15th goal of the season came via a third-period power play. While he's unlikely to come close to his career high of 35 goals he attained two seasons ago, Vrbata is still having a solid season with 39 points. Antoine Vermette and Keith Yandle picked up the assists.

The Phoenix Coyotes were surprised that Radim Vrbata didn't make the Czech Republic's Olympic roster.

"I think he deserves to be on the team," said Zbynek Michalek. "His statistics speak for itself the last couple of years. He's been one of the top scorers among the Czech guys, so it's surprising. Coaches, though, they have their own minds. They make these decisions, and it's not always easy." Vrbata ranks fourth among Czech players with 29 points in 39 games this season. The Czech roster was somewhat surprising, especially with the inclusion of 42-year-old forward Petr Nedved, who last played in the NHL during the 2006-07 campaign.
