Highlights
1-time Olympic Gold Medal 1

Roman Hamrlik was a very steady, reliable second pairing defenseman who could fill in in any situation. Though he never emerged as a superstar that everyone hopes for out of a first overall draft pick, he was a very desirable player, a hard hitter with a quiet snarl to his game. He was better defensively than some people gave him credit for, yet he was not as good offensively as some believed. He had a good shot and made smart first pass, but was never an overly creative offensive player. He became an in-demand player as a veteran because of his savvy and calm play. He would often be brought into a new team to play a leader's role and help young prospects like he once was.

Hamrlik, who was an All-star in 1996, 1999 and 2003, represented the Czech Republic internationally and helped his country win the gold medal at the 1998 Nagano Olympics.
