Karel Hromas is a powerfully built Left Wing who has played an impressive 323 Czech Extraliga (top tier) games and a further 73 games in the Czech second tier through his career to date. The forward is also a former Chicago Blackhawk NHL draft pick (Round 4 - #123 overall in 2004).
He joins the Capitals from HC Morzine in France where he has spent the past two seasons. In 2013/14 he played on the same roster as Michal Dobron.
Michal Dobron said of Hromas “Karel Hromas is a strong physical forward who is excellent on both the power play and penalty kill. In Morzine I saw a player who is fast and has a hard shot. He’s a good skater and will give everything for the team every time he plays. He’s also a great character to have in the dressing room, he lifts a team with his sense of humour.”
Karel Hromas will add a strong physical presence to the Edinburgh Capitals 2016/17 roster.
