Petr Hauser is a power forward with great physical traits that allow him to impact the game in all three zones. He uses his size to his advantage, powering through his peers to get into the prime scoring areas and generate offensive chances. His size and work ethic make him a force on the forecheck, knocking opponents off the puck and recovering it for his team. He is a big hitter, throwing his weight around whenever he gets the chance. Defensively he knows when to cover for his teammates and he knows where to position himself in his own zone to effectively break up plays. He doesn’t have a lot of confidence in himself as a puck-carrier, which is why he primarily serves as an off-puck option. He doesn’t scan the play near well enough, and his puck skills could use some improvement as he doesn’t have the skill to haul the puck all over the ice. On the flipside, he can be too quick to get rid of it, too, tossing it away when not under pressure. In the offensive zone, the longer he has the puck on his stick the more he doubts what he sees. He’s at his best when he’s thinking quickly and moving the puck with a purpose. If he can improve on his puck-handling a little bit, his confidence should increase and effectively help reduce some of the concerns in his game – but it remains to be seen if he will be able to. He has the size and physical gifts to make the NHL but with the lack of skating ability and puck skills it could be a tough road ahead for him. If he does make his way to the NHL it will be as a fourth liner who uses his physicality to wear down the opposing team. There’s always a spot for a player who can do that. He’s potentially a late-round pick in the draft but could wind up as an undrafted player this year.
