Biography

Karel Gut played football as a youth but became better known as an offensive-minded hockey defenseman. He was capped 114 times for Czechoslovakia, scoring 34 international goals, and captained the Czechoslovak team from 1952-60. Gut started his career with Praha ATK, then moved to Tatra Smichov from 1951-53, before playing the rest of his career with Spartak Praha Sokolova TJ. Competing six times at the World Championships, Gut won three bronze medals in 1955, 1957, and 1959, and in 1955 was voted the best defenseman at Worlds. He retired in 1964 and became an ice hockey coach, leading Czechoslovakia to gold medals at the World Championships in 1976-77, and winning six World medals in all as a coach. He has been inducted into both the Czechoslovakian and the IIHF Hall of Fame.
