Observations

December 2018 – Patera, who is currently playing for the Brandon Wheat Kings and getting the bulk of time in the crease, is a part of the Czech Republic World Junior Championship pre-tournament roster. Although some cuts still remain, and the Czechs are waiting patiently to see what players may be released from the NHL and CHL, Patera is expected to be the front-runner to patrol the Czech Republic’s crease. In his first year in the CHL he has done a fine job making the adjustment to a faster pace and the quality of opposition compared to the USHL and his save percentage sits seventh in overall league standings for a team that is on the Wild Card bubble. Vegas will be watching the former sixth-round pick (2017) progress very closely during the 2019 WJC to see if he displays the characteristics of an eventual NHL goalie. Mason Black
