    He showed quick feet on every shift, created chances and played at a good pace with good instincts.

    Nejezchleb is a big forward who can really get moving in a hurry. Has a high skating posture and long strides that make him dangerous in open ice.

    He is a very skilled forward who has good stick-handling skills. With time, Nejezchleb has become more confident to experiment with a broad selection of moves. Creativity and ability with the puck are impressive.

    He has a quality wrist shot that he can get off quickly and with good velocity. He is a quality puck mover, and has good vision that he uses to create high-quality chances for his teammates while showing little hesitation.

    The main downfall to his skill game is that he sometimes tries to be too crafty instead of making a simple play.

    He is beginning to use his body more, becoming a monster along the boards by out muscling and outwitting opponents.

    His checking game leaves a lot to be desired. He takes some questionable routes to pucks at times, and due to his high posture, he tends to get his hands up when making contact, putting himself at risk of taking bad penalties. His defensive game is still evolving as well.

    After growing up in the HC Slavia Praha system and spending a significant time in 2011-12 injured, he made the move to North America for the 2012-13 season. His rights were taken by the Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League, so that's where he ended up.He was only able to play a little over half of the team's season due to injuries. In 2013-14, though, the then-19 year old winger blossomed and had a productive season without those pesky injuries.
    In the beginning of that season, he missed time due to a shoulder injury. Later, it was a hand injury from an accident involving a teammate's skate on the bench.
    His 32 goals are particularly notable as he led Brandon in that category in the 2013-14 season.
    "He has great size and a pretty good skating stride. There's just a little bit of an unknown. Last year was his first in North America. He came over from the Czech Republic and got injured. He looked good in the development camp, so we'll see how he produces here in a game setting."
    Central Scouting Services really liked what he did this season as he jumped from 114th at the mid term to 50th in their final North American rankings. That does speak both very well of the player and poorly of this year's prospects as a 19-year old prospect rated that high in their eyes.
    He's not just big, but apparently moves fairly well with his size. He's got a notable shot and offensive talents. He even has a mean streak; though that's not really a plus. In fact he will have to serve a two game WHL suspension should he return to juniors next season. Still, it's a desirable mix for a prospect forward.

    Mmmm smells like talent.
    ... and a shot, and positioning sense. Suddenly I might not miss Artem Anisimov as much, if we the system can turn this dude into an NHLer. Hope he has the dedication needed to go with it at this level. Big jump from 114 to 50 in the rankings. Not bad.
    In his third year of NHL Draft eligibility he was ranked 50th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings.
    and falls to 122 ... how did we get this guy in the 4th round --- maybe because other teams couldn't pronounce his name and just gave up?

    Traded today from Brandon to Tri City in WHL following being sent back to junior. Nothing more than the Wheat Kings needing to lose an import.

    Interesting. He goes from a top-3 team in the WHL to a more middle of the pack group. A little digging shows that none of the top-3 scorers on Tri-City have been drafted while all three of them are 19 years old. Nobody is above a point/game pace, either. Nejezchleb, as an overager, should be putting up a point/game or more. From what I remember from rookie camp and Traverse City, the beat writers were mentioning his name a lot which is a good sign.

    I thought he played for Brandon. I happened to share a hotel floor in Regina with the Oil Kings last week on their way to Brandon, I leave hotel bar pretty banged up, run in to a few of the kids and say something like "Watch out for Nachelkleb, he's a stud." They quietly locked and barred their door. Now I understand..

    Lmao, yeah he started with them, but was dealt to Tri-City because Brandon had too many over-agers and imports.

    Do you think he'd get playing time with the Pack in the hunt for a playoff spot (3 points up, I believe). Seems to have pro size but I know almost nothing else about the guy.
