Filip Chytil's Player Profile



Craig Button - TSN: "Very skilled, very competitive and finds ways to be productive. Somewhat raw, but excellent potential. Projection: Top 6 two-way forward ... Comparable: Ondrej Palat"

The Draft Anaylist: "Chytil, a talented two-way forward with slick moves and strong balance, was a regular for Zlin in the Czech elite league and performed extremely well against his draft peers at the under-18 world championship last April. Hes an excellent penalty killer and likes to hang on to the puck rather than give away to facilitate his own safety. Chytil is a responsible player who plays the 200-foot game and is used on both the top power play and penalty killing units. "

Future Considerations: "Chytil is a speedy player with good hockey sense and offensive skill. He is a very good skater, with very quick feet and balance on his edges that allows him to generate good power from every stride and high-end acceleration in his first few steps. He uses his speed well to carry the puck up ice, into the offensive zone, stopping up along the outside and setting up for some offensive zone time. His vision of the ice helps him to quickly find open lanes to go through with the puck and once moving he is hard to contain when he finds space. Has decent puck skills, although nothing too electrifying, and is able to receive and dish passes at full speed without breaking stride."
