Bondra in action.

Pavlikovsky Hockey School is an international ice hockey school designed to assist youth players with improving their hockey skills. The camp features on- and off-ice training under the instruction of NHL players as well as world champions.

“I’m excited to help grow the game in the UAE and use my experience to teach young hockey players in the region,” said Bondra.

“The opportunities to host these types of clinics around the globe will promote the growth of hockey and the Capitals brand.”

Monumental Sports & Entertainment, the company behind the programme, is committed to bringing North American sports clinics to the United Arab Emirates through its partnership with Etihad Airways.

Etihad Airways is the exclusive airline partner of the Washington Capitals (NHL), Washington Wizards (NBA), Washington Mystics (WNBA) and Verizon Center. The goal of Monumental Sports Global Academies is to educate communities throughout the world through sports participation.

“We recognize the growth of basketball and hockey worldwide, along with the Arena Football League and our new franchise the Washington Valor,” said Jim Van Stone of Monumental Sports & Entertainment. “We’re committed to encouraging that development on an international scale through several initiatives, including the upcoming clinic. Plus, to host this clinic in the home of one of our Legacy Partners, Etihad Airways, is truly exciting and rewarding for our organization.”

Bondra played in 1,081 NHL games over a 16-season career, scoring 503 goals and 892 points. He played in five All-Star Games and he remains second in Capitals’ franchise history in goals (472) and points (825). In addition, he also served as General Manager for Slovakia’s national team from 2007-11 and as a scout for Team Europe at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.
