Observations

June 2019 – Teplý has been drafted 105th overall by the Blackhawks.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2019 – Teplý was officially measured at 6-foot-3 and 187 pounds at the NHL Draft Combine.  Jokke Nevalainen

February 2019 – Teplý could be described as poor man’s Patrik Laine – he’s a big goal-scoring winger with a right-handed shot, has a great selection of shots, has an amazing release, is capable of making plays, his skating looks a bit clumsy, he isn’t consistent from game to game, and his defensive game isn’t very good – but Teplý’s tools aren’t quite as high-end as Laine’s, so I’m not putting him in the same tier. But there are definitely similarities between the two, and those are hard to ignore. Teplý has spent this entire season at the pro level in his home country Czech Republic. He’s split the season between the top level and the second-highest level. His results there have been good but not great. Teplý has also represented the Czechs at different age levels internationally, and he’s expected to be their top player at the upcoming U18 Worlds. Teplý is likely a second-round pick at this point but a strong finish to his season could potentially push him towards a late first round selection.  Jokke Nevalainen
