Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Vladimir Sobotka
Vladimir Sobotka was born July 2, 1987 in Trebic, Czech Republic. The fourth round, 106th overall selection of the Boston Bruins in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Sobotka spent four seasons competing for both Slavia and Slavia junior in his native Czech Republic.

A smooth puck carrying forward, Sobotka arrived in North America after competing in four seasons of hockey in the Czech League. Upon his arrival, Sobotka would spend his rookie pro season in North America with the Providence Bruins of the AHL. However, mid-way through the season the Boston Bruins would call the young Czech Republic native up for the remainder of the season.

On the international stage, Sobotka represented his homeland twice at the 2006 & 2007 World Junior Championships.

On June 26, 2010, Sobotka was shipped from the Boston Bruins to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for prospect David Warsofsky.
