Fantasy Summary

Big-bodied forward who will need lots of time to develop his game in North America. A late-round project pick who will look to utilize his size and quick wrist shot as he embarks on a collegiate career starting in the Fall of 2022.

June 2022 – Chmelar was chosen to take part in next month’s camp for the Czech team, where he hopes to earn a spot on the team for the upcoming World Junior Championship. Chmelar is also heading to Providence College for the 2022-2023 season, after spending last season with Jokerit U20 in Finland, where he posted nine goals and nine assists for 18 points in 39 games played. He will team up with fellow NYR prospect Brett Berard at Providence. Look for Chmelar to stay at the college level for three to four full years before attempting to turn pro. His NHL rights are held by New York until June 1st, 2025. Brendan Ferry
