    There have to be more. I mean, young guys, that played in Orange 20 team, what can they do? Their mother teams are full of seniors from Czech, USA and Canada. There simply isnt room for Kostelny, Kelemen, Cacho, Fereta ...

    Hrehorcak scored again last night. His team has 4 goals in last 2 games and he has scored all of them.

    It looks like Hrehorcak is trying to prove that he should have been on the WJC team. Pospisil has also started collecting points in addition to penalty minutes in the USHL lately.

    Im very curious about Pospisil. He seems to be one little pest on the field. But with hockey skills. He seemes to be more focused to his fighting skills, as he should.
    In the last USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game, there were some tests. And Pospisil was the 3. most skilled guy, if we could say it so. Here the results.
    Maybe he could attract some interest from NHL teams. They could transform him to good and useful player.

    He could legitimately be very good. He's got incredible athletic skills and intangibles. Problem is that last season he was with Red Bull and they don't play prospects up. So other than 6 tournament games in the Finnish U20 the highest club level he ever played was the Czech U18. You can get away with a lot of bad habits there, like skating in circles playing keep-away from small defenders. No real pressure to make quick decisions. He wasn't ready when he first got to the league. But he's an incredible athlete, super fast, super strong, great hands, great vision, can do just about anything. As he continues to adjust to the league his stats should improve. He may not make up enough ground by the end of the season to be a prime draft candidate, but teams need to look at him if only for his raw skillset and athleticism.

    Another big night for Hrehorcak as he has a 5 point game. He scored 2 and added 3 assists. He has been one of the best forwards in the qmjhl since start of the new year.

    I wonder whether this hot streak is due to him adjusting to the NA game or if it's a change of linemates?

    Actually, the streak began in december. From the date he know, he wasn't going to WJC. Ok not exactly from the date, but when you look to his game logs, from 2.12.2017 he had 19 points (11 + 8) in 12 games. Just imagine, if he could hold it all season.
