Hockey Club Kladno, also known as Rytíři Kladno (Kladno Knights) is a Czech professional ice hockey team based in the city of Kladno. They are currently a member of the Czech 1. Liga following relegation at the conclusion of the 2013-2014 season of the Czech Extraliga.[1] The team is owned by National Hockey League player Jaromír Jágr.[2]

History[edit]

Kladno was a particularly strong team in the late 1970s, when it won four consecutive league titles (1975–1978), and again in 1980. The team's star, Milan Nový, was league MVP in 1977, 1981, and 1982, and won six scoring titles. František Pospíšil was league MVP in 1971 and 1972.

Jaromír Jágr played for his hometown Kladno for parts of four seasons, including during the NHL lockouts in 1994, 2004, and 2012.

During the 2010-2011 season, the team was deducted 6 points for having used players who were not correctly registered to the club, an affair which also involved the clubs BK Mladá Boleslav and HC Plzeň.[3]
