Havlát out, Vampola in quarterfinal vs USA

The Czech Republic has filled the final vacancy on its World Championship roster.

Petr Vampola has been inserted, and will play in the quarterfinal against the United States on Wednesday. His presence will be necessary due to the absence of Martin Havlát, who injured his shoulder when he crashed heavily into the boards in the third period of the Czechs' victory over Germany on Monday.

Vampola gives the Czechs a full roster for the game, as the two players who missed Monday's game, Milan Michálek and Karel Rachůnek, will return. Also playing is forward Petr Průcha, who left during Monday's game as well.

Wednesday's game begins at 16:15 Central European Time (10:15 ET, 7:15am PT). I can be seen in the Czech Republic on ČT4 and in the United States on Versus. The winner will meet the winner of the Sweden-Germany quarterfinal on Friday.
