The Boston Bruins will take home some sort of award no matter what this year. It may not even be an award that a North American player can earn.

According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, Bruins forward David Pastrnak has won an award only available to players from the Czech Republic. He has taken home the Zlata Hokejka which is also known as “The Golden Hockey Stick”. It is awarded to the best Czech player of the past season.

Last season, Jaromir Jagr won the award, winning it for his 12th time during his career. The award was originally given to the best player in the Czechoslovak First Ice Hockey League, in 1968-69. When Czechoslovakia separated into Slovakia and Czech Republic in 1993, the award was then changed to honor the best Czech or Slovak ice hockey player in the world.

Congratulations to Pastrnak on his award and joining some elite company.
