    Czech Republic Czech Prospects

    I found that here is no thread on Czech Prospects. It might be good to have thread where we can talk about them. I try to post here as much as I can.

    I thought I could start with an NHL contract, as Petr Mrazek signed a couple of days ago a three-year entry-level contract with Detroit Red Wings. Mrazek, 19, was drafted by the Red Wings in the 5th round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. This season, he has been very good with Ottawa 67´s of the OHL. He has won 7 of 11 matches, with a .927 save percentage.

    Czech players in the OHL

    I thought that I could put the Czech players here who have played in the OHL this season and their statistics. We´ll see, but I might write the other CHL player statistics tomorrow. I try to do statistical and other updates regularly.

    OHL

    Petr Beranek, forward, Kingston Frontenacs: 12 GP, 2+2=4
    Milan Doudera, defenseman, Niagara Ice Dogs: 11 GP, 0+0=0
    Radek Faksa, forward, Kitchener Rangers: 11 GP, 4+2=6
    Patrick Machac, forward, Brampton Battalion: 12 GP, 4+7=11

    Tadeas Galansky, goalie, Saginaw Spirit: 5 GP, 4.16 GAA, 0.839 SAV%
    Matej Machovsky, goalie, Brampton Battalion: 8 GP, 2.23 GAA, 0.915 SAV%
    Petr Mrazek, goalie, Ottawa 67´s: 11 GP, 2.43 GAA, 0.927 SAV%
    Jaroslav Pavelka, goalie, Niagara IceDogs: 7 GP, 5.37 GAA, 0.846

    It seems that Machac is doing very well right now and that goalies also Mrazek and Machovsky are doing well. On the other hand Pavelka´s and Galansky´s statistics are very not good, but all in all Czechs are doing pretty well right now in the OHL.

    Marek Kalus, forward, Spokane Chiefs: 10 GP, 2+1=3
    Lukas Kralik, forward, Victoria Royals: 12 GP, 2+1=3
    David Musil, defenseman, Vancouver Giants: 13 GP, 1+9=10
    Richard Nedomlel, defenseman, Swift Current Broncos: 13 GP, 2+11=13
    Michal Plutnar, defenseman, Tri-City Americans: 13 GP, 3+1=4
    Adam Rehak, forward, Medicine Hat Tigers: 13 GP, 2+2=2
    Robin Soudek, forward, Victoria Royals: 13 GP, 9+4=15
    Matej Stransky, forward, Saskatoon Blades: 11 GP, 6+6=12
    Dominik Uher, forward, Spokane Chiefs: 7 GP, 4+2=6
    Dominik Volek, forward, Regina Pats: 13 GP, 3+6=9

    Patrik Bartosak, goalie, Red Deer, Rebels: 10 GP, 1.87 GAA, 0.940 SAV%

    Comments

    A couple of players like Soudek, Stransky and Nedomlel are having solid years. It seems that like Nedomlel, Musil has improved his offensive this season as well. But Bartosak has been really good on goal for Red Deer. At least to me he has been a nice surprise.

    Czech players in the QMJHL

    QMJHL - 26.10.2011

    Denis Kindl, forward, Cape Breton Screaming Eagles: 18 GP, 9+9=18
    Tomas Filippi, forward, Baie-Comeau Drakkar: 13 GP, 7+8=15
    Matej Beran, forward, Prince Edward Island Rocket: 16 GP, 6+7=13
    Tomas Hyka, forward, Gatineau Olympiques: 12 GP, 4+8=12
    Petr Straka, forward, Rimouski Océanic: 12 GP, 4+4=8
    Lukas Sedlak, forward, Chicoutimi Saguenéens: 11 GP, 3+5=8
    Tomas Pavelka, defenseman, Prince Edward Island Rocket: 16 GP, 1+7=8
    Petr Sidlik, defenseman, Victoriaville Tigres: 18 GP, 1+5=6
    Jakub Culek, forward, Rimouski Océanic: 12 GP, 1+4=5
    Martin Frk, forward, Halifax Mooseheads: ---- (has been injured)

    Roman Will, goalie, Moncton Wildcats: 17 GP, 3.13 GAA, 0.888 SAV%
    David Honzik, goalie, Victoriaville Tigres: 11 GP, 3.23 GAA, 0.884 SAV%

    Some comments on players

    Kindl is having a pretty good year, as he is the leading scorer on his team. Beran, Hyka and Sedlak are having solid rookie seasons in the QMJHL. From what I have seen Sidlik is a good two-way defenseman. The fact that he is +10 right now indicates it too. It´s unfortunate that Frk hasn´t played so far. It will be interesting to see how he´ll play once he has recovered from the injury.

    In the latest round of the OHL, Radek Faksa scored 1+1 points, as Kitchener lost against Erie in the overtime. Also, Milan Doudera (Niagara) didn´t do points, but was +1 in the match against Sudbury that finished 1-2. Petr Beranek (Kingston) had one assist against Plymouth.

    It is really nice to see that Faksa is doing well on North American ice. I was hoping to see him playing at Ivan Hlinka, but I didn´t see him playing, at least in the games that I saw. I read before the season an article where one scout said that Faksa was at that time a late first or early second rounder in the scout´s opinion. Well, there is plenty of time until the Draft is, but as of now Faksa is doing a nice job and is improving his game.

    Great idea!

    Hopefully some of our Czech members can fill in details as well, especially about those in domestic leagues.

    There are, however, several markets with "Bad Hockey"

    Jakub Vrána seems to be the next bg Czech thing. Despite beng just 16 years old he´s made his debut in the Swedish Elitserien yesterday fter top performances in SuperElit.

    Also developing in Sweden is Vrána´s fellow 1996 forward and U18 NT member David Pastrňák, who has collected 12 points in 12 games so far in SuperElit and ranks top 3 among U17 players in the scoring race in the league alongside Vrána.

    Another name to keep track on is Pavel Zacha. Borin in 1997 he´s scored 9 points in 14 games in Czech junior league and has been pernament fixture on the Czech U17 national team.

    I can report on how Jakub Vrana and Vitek Vanacek look at the Washington Caps' development camp. Looking forward to see how they stack up!

    I just got back from one of the Caps' development camp scrimmages, and I was very impressed by Vrana and Vitecek. The former was very noticeable and was creating plays, and while the latter's team cruised (8-3 score), he was calm in net.
