Jaroslav Halak didn’t have a very good world championship tournament playing for Slovakia. Halak gave up several weak goals against Canada and was eventually pulled. Halak ended the tournament with a 1-3 record, 3.17 GAA and .871 SV%.
But the ultimate insult came in a game against the Czech Republic after the Slovaks gave up their eighth goal in an 8-0 loss. Halak was struck in the head by his frustrated defenseman Tomas Surovy.
