December 2019 – Parik turned heads last season through his play at the international level for the underwhelming Czech Republic. The left-handed catching netminder is continuing his strong play with the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL after coming to North America this season. Parik is very athletic for a large goaltender and is more than capable of handling the puck. The 18-year-old puck stopper has lots of raw skill that will need refinement, with rebound control being a specific area in need of improvement. With Cal Petersen ahead of him on the depth chart, Parik will have lots of time to develop his skills while awaiting his opportunity. Julian Mongillo
