Jan Hlaváč [ [http://www.hcsparta.cz/hrac.asp?id=189 HC Sparta Praha ] ] (born September 19, 1976 in Prague, Czechoslovakia) is a Czech professional ice hockey player, who currently plays for swedish team Linköpings HC.

Playing career

Hlaváč has played at the National Hockey League level for the New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Vancouver Canucks, Carolina Hurricanes, and Nashville Predators. His first stint with the Rangers saw him play on the Czech-mate line with countrymen Radek Dvořák and Petr Nedvěd. He scored 19 goals and 42 points in 1999–2000, his rookie season, and he scored an NHL career high 28 goals and 64 points in 2000–01. He was unable to duplicate his early success in Philadelphia, Vancouver, and Carolina and returned to Europe following a second stint with New York in 2003–04. He played with the Tampa Bay Lightning on a line with Brad Richards and Michel Oullet before being traded to the Nashville Predators. Hlaváč had monumental success with Nashville, scoring during his first game as a Predator. He had 3 goals and 10 assists as a Predator in 18 games played.

Hlaváč became an unrestricted free agent after the Predators decided not to retain him on July 1. In August, he signed a one-year contract with Linköpings HC of swedish Elitserien.
