Hossa is the best

ICE HOCKEY forward Marián Hossa has been named the best Slovak player of last season. The athlete received his Golden Puck on August 2 at a ceremony at the Slovak National Theatre, the SITA newswire wrote. Now a player for the Detroit Red Wings, the 29-year-old, who last season played for Pittsburgh in the NHL finals to win the Stanley Cup against Detroit, received the most support in a poll for the best player for the third time in his career. He now joins an elite club of three-time winners, which also includes Miroslav Šatan and Peter Bondra. But Hossa is the first to win three consecutive titles.
