Fantasy Summary

Depth winger who is an excellent backchecker and forechecker. Effort isn’t an issue, skill is still growing.

June 2022 – Raska’s numbers may not jump off the page but his relentless pace and high-energy play make him ideally suited for a depth role at the NHL level. Earlier this season he became just the second seventh-round pick from the 2020 draft to play in the NHL. I’m a believer in Raska’s ability to break through to regular NHL duty however consistent point production has never really been his forte at any level. Donesh Mazloum

October 2020 – Raska was drafted 201st overall by the Sharks. Raska is expected to need another year or two before moving up to the AHL.  Jokke Nevalainen

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
