• Nejezchleb led the Wheat Kings with 32 goals and totaled 57 points in 2013-14, highlighted by his first career Western Hockey League hat trick in Brandon’s 5-3 win over the Lethbridge Hurricanes on December 9th. He added nine points (5-4—9) in nine playoffs games as the team fell in the second round to the Memorial Cup champion Edmonton Oil Kings.

• In 2012-13, Nejezchleb managed 24 points (11-13—24) in 35 games as a rookie with Brandon. He missed a total of 36 contests due to injury, including a 21-game stretch with ligament and nerve damage in his hand after a teammate’s skate cut him while he sat on the bench.

• Nejezchleb played with HC Slavia Praha in his native Czech Republic and compiled 23 points (11-12—23) in 24 games with the under-20 team in 2011-12 before relocating to Canada.

• He has represented his country at a number of international events, most notably at the 2011 Ivan Hlinka Memorial.

• Nejezchleb was selected by Brandon in the first round (35th overall) of the 2012 Canadian Hockey League Import Draft. He is now in his third and final year of NHL Draft eligibility.

Good size, did pretty well in the WHL with 57 points last year

Mats Zuccarelli 06-28-2014 12:07 PM

I don't like him...I can't pronounce his name.

Congrats on taking the #2 steal of the draft.

I had him as my #8 prospect from the WHL:

8 - Richard Nejezchleb - RW - Brandon Wheat Kings
I am a huge Nejezchleb fan. He is the total package. Excellent size, great hands and shot, a willingness to go to the front of the net to score, and a very high battle level. He is a competent two way player, and plays a very rough chippy style that drive the opposition crazy. He has been passed over in the last two drafts, but I don't feel that should be held against him. His skating is choppy and not to fluid but he gets where he needs to be. Someone will be getting a steal on draft day.

he needs to make the team this year so all the announcers in america can trip over his name.

Zil 06-28-2014 12:09 PM

He's already 20. He can't have that much upside can he?

Lundquest 06-28-2014 12:10 PM

I like this pick a lot. Looks to be a good two way player.

McMozesmadness 06-28-2014 12:10 PM

As for pronunciation:

Nej - Shleb

Yes. Because hes missed a lot of time with injuries.

Mats Zuccarelli 06-28-2014 12:11 PM

And if you say his name very fast, it sounds like "Meth Lab"

Unfortunate that they pronounce it that way in the Dub, because it's pretty bad.

Either way, it looks to me like his name means "don't eat bread", so he may need some carbs.

RangerBoy 06-28-2014 12:15 PM

This player is eligible to play in the AHL in the fall

Yeah, and social security :sarcasm:

RangerBlues 06-28-2014 12:17 PM

At 20 could they sign him and send him right to Hartford?

jerseyjinx94 06-28-2014 12:17 PM

I really really like this pick. He's 20, bring him to Hartford immediately.

What origin is he from? Something Middle Eastern?

Wow, with a name like Richard, I thought that he was an NA player with Middle Eastern or Iranian heritage, never would have guessed Czech. Doesn't sound like a Czech name to me.
