Fantasy Summary

Skilled defenseman that thinks the game at a high level and could become an NHL lifer because of his two-way style of play. His skating is the only thing that is really holding him back, but he has a lot of time to improve that area of his game.

Observations

June 2019 – Ahac was considered a sleeper heading into the 2019 entry draft, and wound up being selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the third round at 86th overall. The North Grove, BC native played the entire year with the Prince George Spruce Kings in the BCHL and scored four goals and 32 points in 53 games. Ahac took a big step forward in the playoffs where he posted 17 points in as many games, including five goals to help Prince George win the BCHL title. Ahac uses his decent size to neutralize the opposition and close gaps on opponents. He’s equally adept at playing in the offensive zone as the defensive side of the puck, and has committed to Ohio State University for the 2019-20 season. Mason Black
