The original news article is in Slovak, so here's the same page after a Google translation to English. Big, big hat tip to Jonathan Willis of the Copper and Blue for bringing up this news.

Elias led all Czechs in scoring in the NHL last season, and the NHL currently recognizes him as the best Czech player in the league. A clear slam dunk over, say Jaromir Jagr playing in the KHL.
