Fantasy Summary

Really good vision and puck-handling skills. Not a flashy player but with his hockey sense and good shot, he could be a top-six forward. Capable of playing both center and wing. Needs to improve his skating.


Observations

April 2020 – Mysak’s arrival in North America went just about as well as it could have. He started his OHL stint with 10 goals in nine games and when the season came to an early end Mysak had registered 25 points in 22 games for the Hamilton Bulldogs. He was able to show off the tools that we saw glimpses of in his native Czech Republic when he played in the men’s pro league there. His shot is lethal and he has some explosion is his game. He finds his teammates well and looked more efficient in his skating stride as the year wore on. He still needs to work on being a bit more efficient with his stride but a noticeable improvement has been made. He thinks the game at a high level and he could find a role in an NHL top-six at some point in the future. He may not be a true line driver but he pushes play in the right direction and he has the skill to be a productive scoring winger. Tony Ferrari

January 2020 – After a strong performance at the U20 World Juniors, the 17-year-old has decided to take his talents to Canada. Mysak will spend the rest of the season with Hamilton Bulldogs in the OHL. Hamilton drafted him 20th overall in the CHL Import Draft last summer, and after a few months of delay, they are getting the player they wanted.  Jokke Nevalainen

July 2019 – At age 16, Mysak played at the pro level in the Extraliga and he showed his offensive skills among men. Litvinov mostly used him as a first or second line center, and he managed to score seven points in 31 regular season games and nine points in six relegation games. He missed two months due to injury but it didn’t slow him down. And when he came back, he was able to immediately play his game. Late in the season, he spent a lot of time on the power play but all in all, 14 of his 16 points were scored at even strength. At the U18 Worlds, he started as the 13th forward which was surprising. But as the tournament progressed, he was getting more ice time and was one of the better Czech players.

Mysak has good accuracy and timing on his shot. He also has good vision and puck-handling skills. He has great hockey sense and he can lead his team’s offense. He usually gets himself into good positions without the puck. He has a solid frame for his age. He needs to work on his skating but he has really improved that already during the 2018-2019 season. Mysak is expected to play a similar role for Litvinov in the Extraliga this upcoming season and he has a pretty solid chance to represent Czech Republic at the U20 World Juniors. At this point, he is projected to become a late first round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.  Czech Prospects
