Juraj Slafkovsky's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "Slafkovsky brings elite offensive skills in a power forward body (6-4, 229). He's already shown he can excel against older competition in Liiga, and at the 2022 Beijing Olympics, where he was the youngest player in the tournament and named its most valuable player after leading all players with seven goals in seven games for Slovakia."

Mike - Morreale - June 29th: "He uses his size, reach and strength as an effective and active checker in the offensive and defensive zone and is exceptional at protecting the puck, has creative hands and a high ceiling."

Peter Harling - NHL Rumors - June 27th: "After a breakout performance at the Olympics, the confidence carried through to the end of the season, where again playing against NHL players at the World Championships he was a standout. Big, skilled, and mobile he is perhaps the most NHL-ready player in the draft."

Jeff Svoboda - NHL.com - June 27: "Slafkovsky has cemented himself at the top of the draft with his international performances this year, as he boasts both size and scoring ability as evidenced by his production in tournaments against senior national teams."

Eetu Siltanen - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "While he still isnít the greatest skater, the developmental leap heís taken over the season has been great. He has strong posture, and he went from having a very short stride to having a solid, powerful stride."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "Slafkovsky is built like a power forward, with a 218-pound frame that makes him one of the draftís heaviest players, but he plays the game with uncharacteristic finesse, regularly flashing hands youíd expect out of a smaller player one-on-one to pull pucks in tight to his feet."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "He possesses outstanding puck skills and can put pucks through legs and sticks at a very high rate. Slafkovsky can use finesse, or power and quickness to get around defenders."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "The potential of what Slafkovsky can be as he continues on in his development is intoxicating. A 6-foot-4 winger with physicality, high-end skill and one of the better overall shots in this draft, itís hard not to get excited."
