Observations

December 2018 – Bukac will be competing for a spot on the back-end of what should be a solid Czech team at this year’s World Junior Championship in Vancouver/Victoria. The towering defender could very well man the point on the second power play unit, but his selection for the team is no guarantee. Bukac has been fine as a defense-minded defenseman for the OHL’s Niagara Ice Dogs this year, collecting six points through 24 games. The defender’s game still has a long way to go if he’s ever to make an NHL roster, but playing in the WJC this year would be a helpful step toward that future. Stuart Hall
