August 2021 – Kubicek was not selected in the 2021 NHL Draft. He is expected to return to the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL for the 2021-22 season. Nick Richard

October 2020 – Kubicek passed through the 2020 NHL Draft without a selection. He will re-enter the draft in 2021.  Jokke Nevalainen

December 2019 – Kubicek is a solid two-way defender who can play in all situations. He certainly is not a flashy player in any regard but is quite effective no matter how he is deployed. For Seattle, he can be found running the power play and getting quick wrist shots through to the net or by playing physical below his own red line and boxing out players along the boards. He is positionally sound and would rather be the last man back than the first guy to pinch in the zone to keep a play alive. Kubicek is capable of rushing a puck up the ice but looks to prefer to allow teammates to take charge of the zone entries. Overall, his stretch passes and solid two-way play make him a versatile defender with good size. His fantasy value won’t be as high as others but his overall impact could see him become a strong transitional defense prospect.  Joel Henderson
