Observations

December 2018 – Kondelik has been named to the Czech Republic’s U20 team for the World Junior Championships. The massive center is in the midst of an impressive rookie campaign with the University of Connecticut with 14 points in 17 games, 13 of which are assists. Kondelik began the season as UConn’s fourth line center but has quickly risen to being given top six minutes, power play time, as well as time on the penalty kill. Matt Somma

October 2018Kondelik made his NCAA debut for the University of Connecticut on October 12th, recording two primary assists in the process. The massive center began his NCAA career on the fourth line while also getting time on the penalty kill. After a strong showing and a shorthanded assist, Kondelik should see his ice time increase. Matt Somma

September 2018Kondelik was selected in the fourth round, 111th overall, by the Nashville Predators this past June. The 6-6 center had an impressive year for Muskegon in the USHL, scoring 16 goals and finishing with 34 points in 44 games. Kondelik more than doubled his point totals from the 2016-2017 campaign and is set to play for the University of Connecticut in the fall. Kondelik’s offensive upside is limited and it’s likely that he peaks at a third line center. Kondelik will need at least three years of college before being ready for the pros. Matt Somma
