COMPARABLE : Marcus Kruger
UPSIDE : 3rd Line Utility Forward
FLOOR : 4th Line Utility Forward


Filip Chytil has an intriguing package of skill, smarts and two-way play. He’s a hardworker and a diligent and tenacious checker. He’s a very good skater and defensively responsible player. This player has sky-rocketed up a lot of people’s lists in the past few months and I’m not really sure why. I don’t think I see Top-6 player upside with Chytil but I think he’s the kind of player that can probably play anywhere in a team’s Top-9. That kind of versatility certainly comes in handy especially at playoff time.

My comparable for him is Marcus Kruger who, in my opinion is one of the best 3rd line players in the league. I see Chytil possibly developing into that kind of player and I think near the end of the 2nd round is pretty good value for a player like that.
