Michal Rozsíval (Czech pronunciation: [ˈmɪxal ˈrossiːval]; born September 3, 1978) is a Czech professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Phoenix Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL). He joined the team in 2011, previously playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins from 2000 until 2004, and the New York Rangers from 2005 to 2011.

Playing careerEdit

Rozsíval was drafted in the fourth round, 105th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. To adjust to North American play, he moved to Canada to play junior hockey with the Swift Current Broncos. Before making his debut with the Penguins, he played for the Syracuse Crunch in the American Hockey League (AHL). He made his NHL debut in the 1999–2000 season.

He came to the Rangers after the 2004–05 NHL lockout as a free agent.

On April 29, 2007, Rozsíval ended the Rangers' longest home playoff game since 1971 by blasting a shot past Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller at 16:43 of the second overtime period.

On July 1, 2008, Rozsíval signed a four-year contract with the Rangers worth $24 million.

On February 22, 2009, Rozsíval switched his jersey number to 33 when former Rangers' player Harry Howell had his number 3 retired.

On January 10, 2011, Rozsíval was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes for Wojtek Wolski.[1]
