    Something is cooking in the kitchen from HC Kosice. This young 14 years old goalie is playing now in Slovakia U 18 league and after 5 games he has fantastic numbers:

    5 games, 3 shootouts, 98,37 %.

    Lets hope, he will continue.

    Here is his profile on SZLH network with actual statistics.

    Pretty amazing this kid is putting up these kind of numbers in the u18 league. Any likelihood he gets some games in the u20 league this season? That would be something

    Dont know his physical parameters. He is still a kid. 4 - 6 years older and heavier guys could be too much for him now.

    That’s quite impressive. 14 year old goalies are no sure thing, but this is a good start.

    Pretty amazing first 14 games for this kid as a 14 year old in the Slovak u18 league.
    1.78 GAA
    .948 SV %
    3 Shutouts
    Numbers are consistent, not just hot start and some flukes. Next year will more than likely play in u20 league

    I really like how Slovakian goalies play. Look what Halak has become. (No sarcasm intended.)

    He is only a 2004 while wallstedt is a 2002 born. But he is very talented and would not be surprised if he got some u20 playing time next season. For right now he has been one of the best u18 goalies.

    I’d say so, if you look at his stats he is playing very consistent. His numbers are no fluke and he is facing often 30+ shots per game. It’s not like he’s getting 15-20 easy saves a game. I had a chance to watch him play and he has very good positioning as well as very good reflexes. I believe another Slovak user compared him to Jonathan quick, which I think is accurate.

    Hopefully he becomes the heir to Halak, Slovaks are in desparate need of talent in net atm. Hes still young and has quite ways to go tho.

    But there is still SVK U18 league quality factor. There are only few teams with real talent. National games in U16 is a little bit better, but the real test will go in next seasons. When he will be in better leagues.

    He needs to go to either Sweden or Finland to play against better competition

    While I imagine the the Slovak U18 league not being the strongest, it's pretty damn remarkable that this 14 year old is still 94.2 svs% 22 games into the season.

    Still very good numbers - 93,93 %.

    But there is also a minus point: No shutout from 16.9.2018 . Still counting 3.

    Yikes!!!. Sorry. I hoped no one would notice :)

    Joking aside, i first red it Rostislav Elias, so that's why. Then i changed Rostislav Klesla to Rastislav Klesla, so it would, you know.
    And yes, i know that's how Elias's name is written in Czech, i didn't wan't to be disrespective or anything.

    Funny enough he’s become the number 1 goalie in Kosice. Originally a 17 year old was getting most of the starts but Elias has worked his way to the starting position!

    No, that would be insane. I’m talking about u18 team, he is getting majority of the starts now.
