Scouting Report

A fast skater who is quick on his feet and can maintain top speed for the duration of his rushes, Hladonik was a top scorer in the Czech junior league and had a top-six role for the Czechs in international events. Hladonik’s game is based on speed and vision, and he develops chemistry with wingers rather quickly. They know how fast he is, and he knows how to slow things downs and let plays develop. Hladonik has quick feet and a solid understanding of play development, and controlling the puck in and around traffic helps him break through zone defenses. The power of his shot is above average and accurate, and he finds a way to score “dirty goals” from the tough areas around the net. Hladonik is average on faceoffs, but he kills penalties with an aggressive mindset and always looks for the chance to pick off a cross-ice pass and jet up ice.
