Observations

December 2019 – Raska was invited to the Czech Republic World Juniors camp. While it is far from a guarantee that he will make the cut, the Czechs need forward depth badly. Jan Mysak, Matej Pekar, and Jaromir Pytlik will be called upon to play big minutes, but they will still need some depth. Overall, Raska loves to be physical in all three zones. Constantly looking for the best time to pounce on his opponents. In addition, his passing is generally accurate and can deliver crisp cross-ice passing. Unfortunately, his shot selection needs work, but perhaps he is still feeling some first-year jitters as he is in his first season in North America. In terms of fantasy upside, he is somewhat limited. He projects to be a bottom-six forward. Josh Tessler
