Filip Mesar is a highly intelligent, skilled forward who can positively impact the game at both ends of the ice. His ability to process the play and understand how to properly position himself in the offensive zone is a standout trait of his. He handles the puck extremely well, using his skating ability to drive the puck to the center lane with speed and get the puck to the high slot for a quality chance. A gifted shooter and passer, he has the ability to provide multiple threats, making him difficult for the opposition to defend against. He has the skill to make plays from both the high-danger areas and the perimeter, aided by the fact he can stickhandle in and out of traffic. Defending players always need to have their heads on a swivel when he is on the ice. For a skill guy, his defensive game is better than one would expect, using his awareness and mobility to quickly identify where his assignment is and effectively shadow them and negate any offensive chances they may have. He has the skillset to play multiple roles. With his high skill potential and skating ability he can also be an effective option on the power play. His defensive zone ability and quickness make him an effective penalty killer, and he has a solid impact at even-strength, too. He needs to mature physically before becoming a full-time NHLer, but the skills and work ethic are present, which will inevitably help. It won’t be long before he’s coming to North America and playing regular minutes in the league. His upside is sky high, and he could end up being a steal in the middle or later half of the first round. Mesar has the potential to be a top-six winger who plays a ton of minutes in multiple roles, and produces quality offensive numbers as a pro.
