January 2022 – Following his silver medal performance with Team Canada in the World Junior Championships, and 11-game professional debut with Vegas’ AHL affiliate in Henderson during the 2020-21 campaign, 2021-22 has been less than stellar for Korczak. A few weeks short of his 21st birthday and currently assigned Henderson, he hasn’t seen ice time for the Sliver Knights since mid-November. During a ten-game, early season span, the Yorkton, Saskatchewan native registered a goal and an assist on 13 shots, and earned a three-game call-up to Vegas without appearing in an NHL contest, but appears to currently be working on his game during practice instead of in AHL play. At his young age, Vegas’ 2019 second round draft selection (41st overall) and still promising blue line prospect has plenty of time to develop, but it is a bit disconcerting that none of that time is coming during actual game play. Kevin Wickersham
