Observations

December 2019 – Peterka has been playing against men in the DEL this season. He has put up five goals and nine points in 24 games with Red Bull München, the top team in the league right now. Peterka’s point totals may not look that impressive but he has only played an average of 11:34 per game, although he has been frequently used on the power play. Peterka is expected to play a big role for Germany at the World Juniors later this month.

Peterka’s value comes from his great skating ability which is noticeably good even at the men’s level. He has both great speed and quickness, and he is a very fluid skater. He uses his speed effectively to force opponents to take penalties. Peterka also has good skills, especially his puck-handling skills and passing skills which are both very good. He has great patience with the puck, most noticeably on the power play where he shines. Peterka’s hockey sense is good but not great. His all-around game is still very raw, even though he is on the older side for his draft class. Shift-to-shift and game-to-game consistency is also a bit of a concern. Peterka is projected to be drafted in the second/third round range of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.  Jokke Nevalainen
