Place of BirthZilina, SVK
Huzevka is a defensive defenseman with a huge frame. He has good posture and is a solid straight-line skater for his size. He flashes abilities to skate the puck up ice, protecting it, making it very hard for the forecheckers to reach the puck with their stick. Occasionally, he activates in the offensive zone at the right time and is able to skate under the defensemen. However, mostly when making a good play with the puck, he is not able to find the next play and advance the puck to his teammate. On the offensive blue line, he has a hard time looking for other options than just shooting the puck without any deception. Huzevka is not very skilled and seems to not be able to process the game at this speed at this point in his career. He made some bad defensive reads, cannot use his big body properly when defending, and most times he loses body position against much smaller opponents or is not able to match their movement because of him lacking agility. Huzevka has great size and good skating posture; he looked solid in some of my previous viewings, but he needs to improve dramatically to be considered at the 2024 draft.
