Broad Strokes: 10 Takeaways from the Hlinka Gretzky Cup

Jiri Kulich is a goal-scoring winger who relies heavily on his off puck movement and elite-level shot to make have an impact on the game. His shot is by far his best asset, possessing a ton of power and accuracy in his shooting ability. He combines it with a lightning-quick release that he can get off from any angle and from a variety of puck placements. His offensive zone IQ and ability to find the soft spots in the defensive zone coverage make him an even more lethal option for his team. He rarely remains stagnant in the offensive zone, making it tough for his opponents to shadow him and eliminate him out of the play. Primarily, he works as an off-the-puck player but he is a capable puck-carrier as well, using his above-average puck skills and mobility to carve through the neutral zone and generate chances for himself or teammates off the rush. There are times where he moves too quickly and tries to do too much with the puck. If he can learn to slow down and think for an extra moment it will allow him to read the developing play much easier and result in fewer turnovers or ill-advised passes. Another thing he will want to do is add some strength to his game so he can fight through contact and get the puck to the high-danger areas more frequently. He has the potential to be a top-six scoring winger, and his shooting ability and offensive instincts will allow him to compliment a play-driving center quite well. His skillset will thrive if a team gives him the opportunity to be a trigger man on a power play unit. With his shot and offensive IQ, getting Kulich extra time and space will do his game a lot of good, especially as a confidence-builder early in his career. He’s one of the draft’s foremost snipers.
