Tomas Kopecky is a Slovak left winger on the Chicago Blackhawks.
Kopecky was drafted by Detroit in 2000. He joined the Red Wings in 2005 after the lockout for a single game. He missed most of the 2006-07 season with an injury, but played a full season in ’07-08, winning his first Stanley Cup. In 2008-09, Kopecky continued to improve his play, playing in 79 games for Detroit. He finished the season with 6 goals and 19 points, as well as 46 penalty minutes. After nearly winning another Stanley Cup with Detroit, Kopecky opted to sign with the Western Conference finalists and division rivals of the Red Wings, the Chicago Blackhawks.
