Fantasy Summary

Massive winger with solid puck protection tools and composure. The skills and skating hold him back, but should become a solid third-line checking forward.

February 2024 – Adam Jecho, a Czech national playing for the WHL’s Edmonton Oil Kings, has been a much talked-about prospect with some even pushing for him in the early first-round. There’s certainly a lot to like. He’s 6’5 and 200+ pounds for starters, near a point-per-game with solid but not spectacular skills. Jecho doesn’t play with a ton of creativity, but he does have some skill. While many of his skills are good for a player his size, they don’t stand out in a big way. His shot is hard with a quick release, but he’s not a long-distance sniper. While his puckhandling, touch, and puck protection are all solid, he doesn’t create much with his passing. Jecho’s limited ability to create offence for himself and diminished ability to do so for others drives him down our list.  His size, skill and poised play could make him a decent NHL contributor lower in the lineup, but at this stage, an impact top-sixer seems unlikely.
