August 2020 – Rousek had a tremendous 2019-2020 season with HC Sparta Praha of the Czech Extraliga. He tallied 14 goals and 29 points in 52 games, fifth in scoring among players on his team and a significant jump from his previous season’s totals. He is an explosive skater who utilizes his speed to pressure the opponent and force turnovers. He is the type of aggressive speedster who can chase down loose pucks and race past flat-footed defencemen. He plays in all situations and takes advantage of his speed along with some puck skills to generate offense. He is 21 years old and may look to make the jump to North American hockey at some point soon, but is still signed with his Extraliga team for another season. Kevin Wong

 

January 2019 – Lukas Rousek was an over-ager when he was selected at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres. He is having an outstanding campaign with HC Sparta Praha. While it took Rousek a long time to get drafted, he is finally showing just how effective he is. The Czech winger seems to thrive on the rush and will make quality passes while going at full speed which leads to great scoring chances. The speedy winger is able to out-skate his competition left and right. In 39 games, Rousek has tallied 13 goals and 7 assists. If Rousek can continue at this pace, when his HC Sparta Praha contract is up, the Sabres might consider bringing him to North America and having him play in the AHL. Josh Tessler
