Observations

February 2019 – Krys seems to have regressed slightly in his junior season with the Boston University Terriers. His point totals are down across the board and he has missed some time for various reasons. This is not the time to panic but it is definitely something to keep an eye on. He is still an elite skater and based on that skill alone, he will be given every opportunity within the organization. Tony Carr

 

December 2017 – Krys was a shocking omission from the US World Junior prelim roster. Off to a great start to his sophomore season, Krys is progressing nicely at both ends of the rink, already surpassing last years offensive numbers, while using his smarts and skating ability to control the defensive end. It will be interesting to see how he handles not being invited to camp. Tony Carr

January 2017- Krys is enjoying a great freshman season with Boston University, suiting up in every game, while contributing at both ends. Despite being the final player cut from the US World Junior team, Krys’ development appears to be right on track, aided by learning from standout defencemen (and fellow Terriers) Charlie McAvoy and Dante Fabbro.~Tony Carr

 

Sept 2016 – Selected by the Blackhawks in the second round of the 2016 draft, Krys is an effortless skater who is able to make plays in both the offensive and defensive zones simply by using his great speed. Making up for his lack of size with superior on ice IQ and vision, Krys has committed to perennial college powerhouse, Boston University for the 2016/17 season. Tony Carr
