Germany has one of the top teams in the country’s U20 history and one of the reasons is the strong 2020-draft class, which JJ Peterka is also part of. He’s been great on the side of fellow draft prospect Tim Stützle. Peterka is a working horse, who rarely takes a shift off. Competes very hard in all shifts and can be in the face of opposing players with his tenaciousness. His strong lower body and legs are supporting him in battles for the puck. So hard to knock off the puck due to his strong legs. Also tenacious in board battles and often comes out as the winner in those battles for the puck. Scored a goal and showing off his offensive upside with a nice wrist-shot. Has been improving his play quite a bit and looks like a 2nd or 3rd round draft pick as of today.
