March 2020 – Perhaps the biggest surprise from an NHL rookie player this season is Kubalik. While all the hype (justifiably so) went to the high draft picks from the recent drafts, Kubalik went out and did his job like he played 500 games in the league already. He has shown an extremely high hockey IQ and has found a home scoring goals by using those smarts to put himself in scoring situations. Management might want to lock him down to avoid another Panarin fiasco. Tony Carr

 

October 2019- Kubalik is off to a decent start in his first NHL season. Playing mostly on the de-facto third line with Brandon Saad, Kubalik is also seeing time on the second power play unit. He has looked very comfortable in the offensive end so far and that should translate to some points in the not too distant future. Tony Carr

 

June 2019- The 2019 NLA MVP has signed a one year NHL contract with the Chicago Blackhawks. Playing for HC Ambri-Priotta, Kubalik led the league in scoring while also being voted as the top forward. Expect that he will be given every chance to make the team out of training camp. A big, talented forward with a nose for the net, Kubalik has a favorite spot on the ice (right side face off circle) and fires one timers from that spot with precision and speed. As with any player trying to make the NHL, there are things to work on but he has addressed his weakness on the defensive side of the puck and worked on his skating. Did the Blackhawks just steal the next Artemi Panarin or have they signed the next Tony Salmelainen? Time will tell. Tony Carr
