Draft History
Drafted in 2014 NHL Draft: 1st Round, 13th Overall Pick by Washington Washington
Additional Information Has been on the radar for several seasons as his skill level has always been evident. He was selected to the roster for the World Junior Under-18 Tournament in April. A dynamic player who despite his smaller size, is an impact player capable of getting dirty and competing against all comers. Displays great vision, IQ and feel for the attack. A flyer with first step quickness, who plays strong on the puck, and excellent puck-handling skills and lateral mobility. Will need to get even stronger but he has deceptive array of shots, and excellent set-up skills, and goes to the battle areas with reluctance at his present size and strength. A very creative offensive generator who can find a teammate or bring the fans out of their seats with his sudden offensive forays. The question might be can he stay focused and give 100% effort for sixty minutes. Again being a elite player in Czech, he hasn't developed the strong defensive commitment he will need in the North American game. It just isn't there yet. A member of his homeland’s team roster for the World Junior Under-20 at Christmas 2014.
