Observations

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
