INGOLSTADT – Defending champion Czech Republic will be joined by Edmonton Oilers forward Ales Hemsky right before the quarter-finals of the 2012 IIHF InLine Hockey World Championship.

The son of the national inline hockey team’s head coach Petr Hemsky is expected to play in tonight’s quarter-final clash against host Germany after he’s been registered on Tuesday.

Hemsky scored 36 points (10+26) this season with the Edmonton Oilers, the team he’s been playing for since joining the NHL in 2002.

Most recently he also represented the Czech Republic in the 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Helsinki and Stockholm where he contributed five goals and eight points in ten games en route to a bronze medal win.
