"David Krejci was supposed to be one of our key players, but his (surgery) makes it impossible for him to participate," Czech Republic coach Josef Jandac said in a statement on Saturday. "We have to respect that."
Cervenka played at the 2010 and 2014 Olympics for the Czechs, and helped the team win gold at the 2010 world championship.
