Adam Jiricek's Player Profile

Rachel Doerrie - ESPN - April 2nd: "He's an excellent skater with great agility, which should serve him well as a transition defender at the NHL level. He reads the play well and makes good decisions on when to jump up in the rush."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - March 25th: "He’s got good four-way mobility, an active disposition (he has also shown at the pro level that he can simplify and play a more effective game), balanced shooting mechanics, and an eye for spacing and for identifying opportunities to jump on both sides of the puck, plus legit skill with the puck to build upon."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - March 13th: "The low offensive numbers have never been in line with his skill set. Add in the injury issues and there remains a ton of questions as to whether or not he can reach the potential that his talent teases."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - March 12th: "His skating allows him to make a lot of stops and be strong going back to retrieve pucks. Jiricek uses his big body well and competes for pucks. Offensively he doesn't stand out, but he has some skill and moves pucks efficiently."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - March 9th: "Jiricek was injured at the world juniors and is out for the year after suffering a knee injury in Czechia’s opening game. His draft stock is going to take a huge blow, especially after just a so-so run with HC Plzen."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - March 7th: "He plays at a high tempo, joining the rush and engaging on the cycle. He’s just as aggressive defensively, cutting down lanes and using his size to create separation, but his special awareness could use work."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - March 1st: "Jiricek (6-2, 178) sustained a season-ending injury to his right knee while playing for Czechia in the first game of the 2024 WJC on Dec. 26. The right-handed shot had one assist in 19 games in Czech Extraliga, the nation's top professional league, but remains a top draft prospect."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - February 27th: "Jiricek is tall and lean. He has time to fill out his frame as he matures. The two-way defenceman was having a bit of a disappointing season offensively before his injury, but there’s no denying he has the tools and hockey sense to potentially slide into a second pairing role at the NHL level in time."
