Bedřich Ščerban’s high-level hockey career lasted from 1983 to 2008 with multiple European teams. He competed at three Winter Olympics (1988, 1992, 1994) and eight World Championships (1987, 1989-95) for Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic, winning five bronze medals – 1992 Olympic and World bronzes in 1987, 1989, and 1992-93.
