Radek Bonk joins Czech hockey team, produces best signing photo ever

Monday November 24th, 2014

Former NHL player Radek Bonk has signed to play with a team in the Czech Republic, according to iSport -- it’s a Czech site, so some translation may be required.

But you won't need any language skills to know Bonk enjoyed the event. Bonk, drafted by the Ottawa Senators in 1994, looks absolutely ecstatic about his new team, even if the signing celebration was held in what appears to be a dimly lit basement.

There’s really nothing else to be said, other than to wonder why more players don’t sign with Czech teams.
