    He was struggling in the Czech Republic and was send to the 2nd league for getting his game together. Hopefully the move the WHL will help him to get his game back.

    Note: Can one of the mods correct the title to Jakub and not Jukub? Thx.

    It´s good for him. He hasn´t gotten enough ice time and has really struggled this year.

    The same with Vojtech Polak, CHL might help him get back to the shape.

    Im looking forward to him getting a chance in NA. From what Ive heard he is a very streaky player but has tons of offensive upside.

    He will play with Monych and Konsorada most likely....Stone is a center.

    sindel has an insane offensive upside. i expect him to tear up the WHL and score a ton. He was probably the most purely skilled offensive player in his draft.

    From what Ive heard this guy is an awesome offensive talent. But he has never "scored a ton" in his pro career, and Id expect him to have a tough transition to NA hockey because of his size. If he can put up 0.5 points a game, then thats a good season.

    I'm very happy I get a chance to see so much of him here in Brandon. I just hope the transition isn't too tough for him.

    As for who he'll play with, I'm thinking he may end up on the top line with Fehr and Stone because Codey Burki has been surprisingly good with Timmy and Lance. Though I wouldn't be too surprised to see Codey moved back down. They could always move Topilko back to playing the wing like he did earlier on this season I suppose.
    Doesn't hurt to have him for the power play either (even if we already have the top unit in the league).

    I really think it would give him a huge boost to play with Fehr and Stone in his adjusting. Hopefully he gets his confidence up early to make the whole life style transition easier.

    From what i've seen of him at the WJC's last year, which was a modest viewing at best. This guy might struggle early in his first few games in the Dub.

    It's a physical league. Sindel has unreal talents but he's extremely thin, unless he's bulked up he'll be pushed around quite a bit when opposing big players. He does show willingness to compete though and that might go along way.

    BUT! this is perfect for his devolopment. Hawks fans should be excited that he's going to learn the North American game in a very talented, physical league with players his age in the WHL.

    Overall this is good news for all three parties involved, Sindel because he'll be playing again, Blackhawks well get a top prospect a better devolopmental situation, and Brandon well get a very talented player to go along with Fehr and Stone. But I wouldn't be concerned if he struggles early.

    Just to give you guys an update, Sindel got his 1st goal last night on the empty net they call Adam Ward. He was an even, though the goal against he was on for was Tyler Plante's fault. He's playing on the 2nd line with Konsorada and Monych as well as the 2nd power play (which isn't much). He was also on for some shorthanded shifts with Codey Burki. Unfortunately, the game was pretty bad to try to get a good idea of what kind of a player he is. There were 17 powerplay opportunities between the teams.
