David Jiricek's Player Profile

Brock Otten - McKeen's Hockey - Nov. 16th: "Also, a right shot defender (like Nemec), mobility and quickness is the highlight of Jiricek’s game as it allows him to be aggressive offensively. His performance at various international events this year will likely dictate his draft position."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Nov. 11th: "Put on an absolute show early on in the Czech League season, proving he could bring offense, mobility and poise from the back end."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 3rd: "He’s a strong and sturdy defender who plays a staunch man-to-man style, moves his feet well for his size, and thrives in transition with his ability to both close out on gaps with his length through neutral ice and lead a ton of rushes as a puck transporter."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Nov. 3rd: "As a defenceman, he will have added value in this draft class that's full of high-end forwards."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Oct. 25th: "There’s a lot of attractive elements to a 6-foot-3, right-shot defenseman with legit offense and two-way ability. He skates fine, well enough for his size."

Bob McKenzie - TSN - Sept. 30th: "At 6-foot-3 and 189 pounds Jiricek is viewed as a throwback, hard-rock shutdown defensive defenceman, an ultra-aggressive big hitter with a mean streak who is a strong skater. Scouts love all that bite but are still debating his offensive ceiling/limitations."

Craig Button - TSN - Sept. 30th: "A strong, territorial defenceman who plays with a highly competitive level defensively but also has the sense and feel to jump into the attack and contribute to the offensive thrust."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 15th: "He’s a tremendous transitional defender who snuffs out plays in the neutral zone with his skating and length, and leads a lot of rushes as a puck transporter back the other way. Inside the offensive zone, he’s also a capable handler and distributor."

Samuel Tirpak - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 3rd: "Ji?í?ek is an offensive defenseman who excels as a powerplay quarterback with one of the hardest and deadliest shots in the draft. His offensive skills are great, having a very good understanding of the offensive zone and where to be in order to get an offensive opportunity started or to finish off an opportunity himself if he sees fit."

Ben Kerr - LWOS - Aug. 9th: "Jiricek has excellent size at 6’3? and outstanding skating ability. He seems to float above the ice, with excellent technique and the edgework, pivots, and agility to cover ice in all directions."
