He plays a hard-nosed game, is a very hard-worker, battles all over the ice and has good offensive awareness. He is on a VERY good development curve as he is, defensively, NHL ready right now. He will be able to create offense from defense and is a VERY good skater.

Comparable players:
Mike Peca, Chris Drury.

I think he has 2nd line center upside while his downside is that of a solid 3rd line center. I think he will be better than Pahlson.

He also played with Fasth in the WJC.

I liked Werek. I thought he would bring some grit to the team with his size. But with his injuries, if it is true they were unsure whether to sign him at all, this is a GREAT deal.


Reading this post makes me feel good about the trade.

Hope Werek thrives with Yotes.
