Scouting Report
The veteran Czech defenseman owns good size and a championship pedigree. Has a good point shot but is not a threat to put up a lot of points. He is at his best when utilized as a stay-at-home defender, ideally paired with a more offensive partner. He is very useful in a sheltered role and not used too much. Can kill penalties with aplomb.
Long Range Potential: Big defensive defenseman.
