Dominik Pesek arrived in Victoria yesterday. The 21-year-old righty forward from the Czech Republic will arrive in the British Columbia Junior A Lacrosse League April 27 when he makes his Canadian debut with the Shamrocks as they play host to the New Westminster Salmonbellies. While Pesek is new to North America, he’s not a complete mystery to dedicated lacrosse fans who have caught his high-skill style with the Czech Republic at the 2011 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships. He was one of his country’s leading scorers as they reached the semi-finals and a eventual bronze-medal matchup against the United States. He’s also been a visible presence at the Ales Hrebesky Memorial tournament in Prague each April, although he won’t be able to make it this year. But if you haven’t had a chance to catch Pesek in action and you can’t wait till the end of next month, this video’s a primer on what the talented youngster can do with a lacrosse stick.Stamp is a TV sports announcer and lacrosse lover whose skill set made him a defender but who always dreamed of being a goal-scorer.
