Observations

November 2018 – In his second WHL season since transferring from the Czech Republic, Kral has maintained a similar point pace with 5 points in 8 games. This is very reassuring to Leafs fans because Kral missed significant time with an upper-body injury sustained in training camp. He is very likely to return to Team Czech Republic for the upcoming WJC. Returning from injury is step 1, now let’s see him take a step forward in his d+1 campaign. Hayden Soboleski

 

The Maple Leafs selected Kral with their 5th round pick in the 2018 Entry Draft. He is a strong skater and led WHL rookie d-men in scoring, but is still a work in progress when it comes to defensive aptitude. At 149th overall, Toronto got good value relative to several draft rankings projecting him in the 90-110 range.
