Valašský hokejový klub Vsetín, also known as Hockey Club Vsetin, is an ice hockey team in the Czech Second National Hockey League (third-level league). The team is the most successful in Czech Republic ice hockey history, winning five straight Extraliga championships between 1995 and 1999, and another in 2001 for six titles in seven years. Their home arena is Zimní stadion Na Lapači in Vsetín. In the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons they finished bottom of the league and did not participate in any competition in the 2007-08 season due to financial problems.[1] Hockey returned to Vsetín a year later, when a new team was founded. The team has been playing in the Second Czech National Hockey League since the 2008-09 season.
