The ice-hockey match that pitted a selection of “the East” and “the West” against each other ended in a 28:23 victory for the latter. Jurčina contributed to the winning result with one goal and two assists. But before that, Jurčina – currently palying for Medveščak Zagreb – presented himself with the toughest shot in the competition of skills: his shot flew at a speed of 163.12 kilometres per hour.
“It was fun for both audiences and us, players,” Jurčina said, as quoted by the Sme daily. “Fifty-one goals in a single match, that is unprecedented. But we were after a record, we just wanted to entertain visitors with our goals.” He added in an interview published on January 25 that both players and audience enjoyed the ice hockey.
