Observations

September 2019 – At the U20 Four Nation Event, Pytlik had spent time playing both center and right-wing. Unfortunately, Pytilk had positioning issues and would often go back and forth between playing on the right side and at center on the same shift. That needs to be ironed out. Also, Pytlik needs to be cautious about staying onside. Most of the time, Pytlik is not the one carrying the puck into the zone and will wait at the blue line. He will occasionally get a bit jumpy and beat the puck carrier into the offensive zone. While Pytlik needs to work on positioning, his skating is solid. His crossovers and edge work are sound. In terms of his defensive awareness, Pytlik will not consistently battle along the boards for the puck, but there are times where he will be more active along the boards. When he is at open ice, he makes great poke checks and constantly looks for the optimal time to pounce on the puck. His biggest asset is his play in the offensive zone. You can count on Pytlik for accurate passes to and from anywhere on the ice. He is quite effective at creating space for himself and finding holes in the offensive zone to help his team capitalize.  From a fantasy perspective, Pytlik has all the tools to be a productive point getter in the NHL. When he is NHL ready, he will likely be a solid second-line or third-line contributor. Josh Tessler
