Fantasy Summary

He projects to be a stay-at-home defender that could produce peripheral stats in multi-category league settings. However, he possesses all of the tools to eventually put up decent numbers if he continues his current trajectory.

Observations

June 2019 – Korczak was selected 41st overall by the Vegas Golden Knights in the second round of the 2019 NHL Draft. He’s an intelligent two-way defender that provides quick transition to support teammates based on his excellent skating with a big frame. Although Korczak put up respectable numbers for a draft eligible defenseman playing for the Kelowna Rockets, he was regarded as one of the best one-on-one defenders heading into the draft. It’s this complimentary style of play that had him fly under the radar because his point potential wasn’t as high as some other prospects picked right before him in the draft. He won’t ever run a power play at the NHL level, but he’ll allow another defender to run rickshaw at even strength, and pick up points along the way. Mason Black
