Observations

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
