Former Ice Hockey Player and Coach, Stanislav Neveselý, Dies at 87

Stanislav Neveselý, a former ice hockey player and coach, died today at the age of 87.

This was reported by the iDNES.cz server with a link to information from former Jihlava forward Augustin Žák.

In 1985, Neveselý, as Luďko Bukač’s assistant, led the Czechoslovak national team to victory at the World Championship in Prague. The year before, he participated in winning silver medals from the Olympic Games in Sarajevo.

In Jihlava, Neveselý won eight league championships as a junior coach together with Jaroslav Pitner and another three as a senior coach with Jaroslav Holík.

During his active career, the native of Břilice near Třeboně played for Sparta Prague from 1959 and from 1964 to 1967 for Dukla Jihlava. In the first league, he played 168 games over six seasons and scored 33 goals.

His goal in Sparta’s game against Slovan Bratislava at the end of the 1961/62 season was memorable, when he beat Vladimír Dzurilla with a shot almost from the halfway line. Sparta won 2:1 in Bratislava and Slovan lost the championship title, which was won by Red Star Brno.

A member of the Czech Hockey Hall of Fame, he was a coach in Switzerland until the mid-1990s. In 1991, he was the head coach of the Czechoslovak team at the World Cup in Finland, which took sixth place at the tournament.

He was also part of the greatest success of Czech hockey. He was the team manager at the 1998 Nagano Olympics.
