Fantasy Summary

Offensive-minded defenseman with size and skill. Efficient as a power-play quarterback and a great decision-maker with the puck. Defending backwards is a work in progress, but could crack a top-four.

October 2022- Duda has been outstanding in the MHL, racking up nine points in 12 games, earning a recall to KHL squad CSKA Moscow. There, like many young players in the KHL he has not seen a lot of playing time but going up against bigger, faster more talented players has been good for his development. Duda has one assist in four KHL games. Keith Duggan

July 2022 – The Arizona Coyotes have selected Duda in the second round of the 2022 NHL Draft, 36th overall. Nick Richard

May 2022 – Duda had an excellent season in the MHL, leading all draft-eligible defenders with 14 goals and 41 points in 52 games for Moscow’s junior side. He stepped it up even further in the playoffs, adding 17 points in 18 postseason matches for his squad.

A great skater with solid offensive instincts, Duda was often used as the team’s point-man on the power play, where he put his mobility, execution speed and accurate shot to use on a regular basis. He was also good at breaking the puck out of his zone, and shows some poise in possession to cut back across the grain and find better passing lanes with forecheckers on his back. His intensity can waver at times, and he struggles with defending while skating backwards, but the offensive promise is there, and Duda could end up manning an NHL man-advantage with enough time and patience.  His 6-foot-1 frame should fill out quite well, which will help him with board battles and contested pucks. A top-four role down the line is the ceiling, but there are improvements needed in his game to see that come to fruition. A great long-term project to have in the pipeline. Hadi Kalakeche
