Roman Červenka[1] (born 10 December 1985 in Prague, Czechoslovakia) is a Czech professional ice hockey player who plays for Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Červenka began playing with Slavia Praha's junior teams, playing for the under-18 team in 2000–01 and 2001–02, and the under-20 team in 2002–03 and 2003–04. During the 2003–04 season he also made his Extraliga debut, playing a total of 15 games with the top-level team. After playing for various junior-level and 1 Liga teams during the 2004–05 and 2005–06 seasons, Červenka rejoined Slavia Praha in 2006–07. In 2008–09, Červenka recorded 59 points (28 goals, 31 assists) in 51 games.[2][3]

Červenka has represented the Czech Republic with the national team on multiple occasions. He earned a bronze medal at the 2005 World Junior Championships. He also played at the 2009 IIHF World Championship and was selected to play for the 2010 Winter Olympics. At the time of the Olympic team selection, Červenka was leading the Extraliga with 55 points in 35 games.[4]

Daniel Sallows of the Bleacher Report named Červenka the seventh-best ice hockey player not in the NHL.[5]

On 25th May 2010, Červenka signed a two-year deal with Avangard Omsk.[6] He immediately earned a place on the left wing of the first line alongside his countryman Jaromír Jágr and quickly established himself as a prolific KHL forward. In his very first season, Červenka was selected to play in the Kontinental Hockey League All-Star Game collecting more fan votes than any other skater in the league.[7] Having scored 31 times in the 2010-11 season, the forward received the Top Goalscorer award from the league.[8]
