Observations

March 2019 – Jasek has suffered through an up-and-down season in the American league. The 21-year-old has earned more top-six time than his fellow AHL rookies and has produced the most tangible results. His 21 points in 49 games sit seventh in team scoring. He’s been on an icy spell of late, however, with just one assist in his last 10 games. Expect further consistency from the speedy winger in 2019-2020 where he attempts to establish himself as a true NHL option. Cam Robinson

April 2018 – Jasek has been an absolute revelation since joining the Utica Comets. The former sixth round draft pick has compiled seven points in six AHL contests – six of which have come at even-strength. Utica will now begin their playoff matchup against the top seeded, Toronto Marlies and will need Jasek to continue his blistering pace. The Canucks have until June 1st 2019 to sign the Czech winger to an entry-level contract but with his performance thus far, it’s safe to assume that will happen sooner rather than later. It will be interesting to see if he returns to the Czech Republic next season or sticks in the AHL where his development can be more closely monitored. Cam Robinson

March 2018 – Jasek has signed an amatuer tryout with the Utica Comets of the AHL after completing his season in the Czech top league. The former sixth round pick had spent much of the last few seasons bouncing between pro leagues in his native country but saw strong deployment with Bili Tygri Liberec this season while recording eight goals and 18 points in 48 contests. The name of the game for Jasek is speed. He has the ability to drive wide and isn’t shy about heading towards the front of the net despite being slight of weight. He is a strong distirbutor and can finish just as well. Jasek has always flashed some NHL potential so all involved will be curious to see how this look in the AHL will turn out. Cam Robinson

December 2017 – Jasek has finally found a full-time position in the Czech top league and has show fairly well. The slight playmaker had a great start to his season, but has trailed off a tad of late, posting three goals and nine points in 27 contests to go along with a minus-10 rating. Jasek just recently turned 20, so there’s still time to see his game develop enough to warrant a cross over to the American league, but he appears ot be a long shot at this point. Cam Robinson

July 2017 – The Canucks’ 2015 sixth-round selection signed a two-year agreement with Bili Tygri Liberec in the Czech Extraliga back in May. The Canucks own his rights until June 1, 2019 so at the completion of this new deal, they would still be able to sign the slick winger to a standard entry-level contract. Jasek has bounced around between the top two professional tiers and the U20 league for much of the past three seasons, never really establishing himself in the Extraliga. The hope is with this new deal, he’ll be a full-time player for Liberec in 2017-18. Cam Robinson

January 2017 – Jasek struggled to find his game at the WJCs this holiday break. The 19-year-old winger failed to record a point in five contests and ended the tournament with a minus-four rating. His Czech Republic squad was eliminated by the Canadians in the quarter-finals. Jasek will look to return to his home country and try to wedge his way into the top tier and produce while there. It’s a long road ahead for Jasek whose resume doesn’t scream NHL-talent. Cam Robinson

December 2016 – While not officially on the Czech U20 team for this coming WJC, Jasek is one of just 12 forwards invited to training camp, implying the 19-year-old will suit up for his national team this holiday break. The Canucks’ sixth rounder from 2015 has struggled mightily to put up points in the Czech top league, but has been providing decent results in their second division. He remains a long-term prospect but at times has dazzled scouts with his shifty edgework and electric fast hands. Cam Robinson

August 2016 – After a season that saw the sixth rounder suit up in four separate Czech development leagues, Jasek came to the Canucks development camp looking stronger and more confident than a year prior. Not yet 19 years of age, the speedy winger has remained committed to staying overseas to develop, and this likely led to him being passed over once again in the CHL Import Draft. He’ll need to find consistent minutes in the top league to continue his career ascension. Cam Robinson

January 2016 – Jasek has continued to work forward in his development as an offensively talented forward in his home country of the Czech Republic with Trinec, but it hasn’t gone accordingly to plan. Playing against men, he appears outmatched physically at a mere 160 pounds, and has put up only three points in his 16 matches thus far. His body language seems to show discouragement, which in a European environment doesn’t help when considering his movement to a smaller ice surface. While still possessing great talent, Jasek has struggled with the strength required in the pro game and will look to make an impact during his time in the World Juniors where he will represent his homeland. While he still possesses the kind of talent you want in any prospect, his lack of physical strength will be the limiting step towards becoming a factor in North America … provided his body co-operates. If everything goes well, he has the natural talent to be a contributor … but that’s a big “if.” David McDonald

November 2015 – Jasek has still yet to score a goal in his pro career, including 27 games last season and nine this year. He had two assists in 2014-15, and added another this season while receiving minimal ice-time on a weak Trinec Ocelari team. Of note, this summer he was left off the early World Junior Championship list for the Czech Republic. Mike Barrett

June 2015 – The Vancouver Canucks selected Lukas Jasek with the 174th pick of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross June 2015 – Jasek played in the Czech leagues in the 2014-15 season, after spending 2013-14 in Sweden, getting a taste of action with 27 games in the men’s league where he was able to post two assists, he also was able to play in one playoff game. Jasek played 24 games at the U20 level for his club, Trinec, picking up 10 goals and 17 assists. He played quite a disciplined game only picking up 10 penalty minutes in all his games this year including an additional 12 international games at the U18 and U20 level; he was unable to post a point at the U18 in five games however. At only 172 pounds and growing two inches in the past season Jasek is considered undersized by many who really needs to fill out and add some strength. Benjamin Gallant
