Holecek:
•CSSR Golden Stick Top 10 Finishes: 1st (1974), 2nd (1975), 2nd (1977), 2nd (1978), 5th (1971), 5th (1972), 5th (1973), 8th (1977)
•All Star or Best Goalie in Extraliga (1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1978)

Dzurilla:
•CSSR Golden Stick Top 10 finishes: 3rd (1972), 4th (1970), 5th (1969), 6th, (1977), 9th (1976),
•All Star or Best Goalie in Extraliga (1969, 1970, 1977)

I realize that Dzurilla was better than Holecek before 1969 when the awards were first given, so the gap isn't quite as big as the awards different looks. But Czechoslovak hockey in general was much weaker before 1968 or 1969 than it was in the 1970s.
Where would be a good start for me to look into the competition in which these awards were rendered? I know stats might be tough to come by, but is there a good spot to look where I might find, say, the other goalies that played in the Czech League in 1972 or '68 or whatever...?
