was formed instead, forcing the Social Democratic Chairman, Jiří Paroubek, to resign. Šlégr, loyal to Paroubek, followed the former chairman in 2011 when he left the Social Democrats and founded a new party, the National Socialists – 21st Century Left. Since he had refused to resign, Šlégr remained in the Parliament as an unaffiliated MP.[1] Šlégr announced on June 14, 2013 that he was "going back to the clean environment among athletes" and stepped down from his position.[2] Personal life[edit] He is the estranged son of former Vancouver Canucks

defenceman Jiří Bubla. He legally changed his surname from Bubla to his stepfather's surname of Šlégr as a child. Šlégr was married 15 years with Kateřina Šlégrová. The couple split in November 2010 and divorced in February 2013.[3] Šlégr married Lucie Králová in May, 2015.[4] Career statistics[edit] Regular season and playoffs[edit]
