Most random place he played a junior hockey game: Probably when I was 16, I played on a U-20 national team and we beat the U.S. in a medal game in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Most common hockey nickname: They used to call me Baby Jagr back in the day, but right now, they call me Fro-Fro, and I kind of like that.

On a scale of 1-to-10, how would you rate your playoff beard? Six or seven.

In your lifetime, how many stitches do you think you’ve needed because of hockey-related injuries? 30, maybe 40.

How old were you when you learned to skate? The first time I stepped on the ice, I was like 3 years old because my father played hockey and so we were kind of a hockey family all our life. So the first time I learned to skate, I was five or six.

How many languages do you have to expect to do interviews in during the Stanley Cup Final? I know just two – Czech and English.
