Fantasy Summary

Large goaletender with raw abilities. A long-term project that could materialize into a starter one day


Observations

Click to Expand

June 2021 – Kloucek began the first of a two-year contract to remain in Europe playing with HC Dynamo Pardubice. This coming after the Predators did not sign him to an entry-level contract after the 2020 season. In 20 games, with Pardubice, Kloucek posted 10 wins through 20 games and had a 0.908 save percentage. While still a goaltender with potential, he simply ran out of time within the Nashville system and is no longer part of the organization. Nicholas Kawka

 

July 2020 – Kloucek saw a heavy workload this season playing in 35 games while being on loan to Motor Ceske Budejovice in the Czech-2 league.  He had stellar numbers posting a 1.78 GAA and 0.931 SV%.  Still only 22 years of age, Kloucek remains a potential darkhorse in the Predators goaltending system and will need to continue progressing in order to lock up an ELC after the 2020-21 season. Nicholas Kawka

 

July 2019 – In his second season playing for Pardibuce HS in the Czech league, Kloucek saw his games played increase from 10 to 20, but most of his statistical categories dipped as his club team finished last in the league and he was left to be exposed. He finished the season on loan to a Czech Div 2 club as he needed more seasoning and reps. Kloucek remains a relative unknown goaltending prospect in most circles and will need to continue to refine his consistency in order to establish himself and stick with Pardibuce. Nicholas Kawka
