Fantasy Summary

Don’t expect big offensive numbers but Galvas has the talent to be a top-four defender in the NHL.

April 2020 – The organization is still very high on the 2017 fifth-round pick. The Czech defender appears poised to spend another season playing for Jukurit of the Finnish Elite League (Liiga). With a large group of young defensemen in the system already, the Blackhawks are content to take their time developing Galvas. Tony Carr

February 2019 – Points do not always tell the tale of a player and that is the case with Galvas. He only registered one assist in five games during the WJC but his defensive play was much improved from the previous tournament. The organization seems to be very high on him and will be careful with his development. Tony Carr

December 2018- Galvas has been given the chance to earn his second trip to the world junior hockey championships after being named to the Czech Republic’s preliminary roster. He is putting together a solid season playing in the Czech Republic’s top division with HC Olomouc where he currently sits second on the team in points. Tony Carr

December 2017 – The Blackhawks continued their trend of drafting smooth skating, smart defensemen when taking Galvas in the fifth round at this year’s draft. Galvas does everything well on the ice but will need to pack on some weight to his undersized frame. Despite his lack of size, he does not shy away from the physical side of the game. It will be interesting to see how he handles the smaller ice surface here in North America when he represents the Czech Republic at the 2018 World Junior Championship. Tony Carr
