Biography

Jiří Kochta started his career with ČKD Praha in 1962 but moved to HC Dukla Jihlava in 1965 and played with them for three seasons before moving back to ČKD Praha, with whom he played through 1979. He then finished his playing career with six seasons in Germany, playing with EV Landshut and EC Hedos München, retiring in 1986. But Kochta stayed in Germany, becoming a top coach in the German league, coaching various teams, including Fussen EV, EC Hedos München, Saxonia Foxes, Heilbronn EC, Revier Lions, and Dresdner Eislöwen.

Kochta was selected by the Ottawa Nationals in the 1972 WHA General Player Draft, but the Czechoslovakian government would not allow him to play professionally in North America. Internationally, Kochta played at the 1968 and 1972 Winter Olympics, winning silver in 1968 and bronze in 1972. He played at seven World Championships in 1967 and 1970-75, winning gold in 1972, silver in 1971, 1974, and 1975, and bronze in 1970 and 1973.
