Who stood out at the 2020 World Juniors

While he isn’t the most skilled player on the ice, Peterka is a hard worker and utilizes his solid skating to help his team transition the puck effectively with speed. His skating is smooth, and his strides are effective at getting him to where he wants to go. The combination of straight-line speed and crisp edgework allows him to dip and twist his way through opponents and get to center ice in an incredibly deceptive manner. Through his skating and solid senses, he can get to the right areas on the ice while finding skating lanes and weaving in and out of traffic to pick his spots. He is a good passer but doesn’t excel as the primary playmaker. He is a lethal triggerman, able to shoot the puck from a variety of positions and changing the angle with puck work. As a pure goal scorer, he scores in a variety of ways and whether it’s a one-time blast or a greasy goal in front of the net, he does an excellent job of finding the dangerous areas of the ice. His strong lower body and legs support him in battles for the puck and he is hard to knock off the puck. Tenacious in board battles, often comes out as the winner in those battles for the puck. He needs to work on his defensive game as he sometimes gets lost but he has an active stick and a hunger for the puck.
