Hey Habs fans, not sure if you've seen this yet or not, but the profile on Pribyl from the DobberHockey Prospects Report that I wrote:

Daniel Pribyl, C/RW
2010-11 Team: Sparta U20 (Czech U20)

For 6’3, 189 lbs power forward Daniel Pribyl, getting knocked out of the playoffs early might have been the best thing that could have happened to his career. Eighth in Czech U20 scoring with 58 points in 41 games, Pribyl earned a three-game call-up to the Sparta senior team in January but went pointless in limited action.

Enter the post-season. Headlining a deep and talented Sparta junior club, Pribyl and his team were expected to make a run all the way to the U20 Finals. However, that dream came to an abrupt end in the semi-finals. Despite pulling a Jonathan Toews and scoring on three consecutive shoot-out attempts in the final game of the series, Pribyl and Sparta were knocked out by Karlovy Vary.

Impressed by the youngster’s confidence, HC Sparta Praha head coach Miloslav Hořava called up Pribyl for the relegation round, and the rest- as they say- is history. Pribyl tallied two goals and an assist in four games- and should have had even more. According to one Czech media report, he was not credited with an assist on a deserving play in a game against Brno. That same report called his points “Canadian”, about the biggest honor a European player can get.

Blessed with tremendous stickhandling ability and a non-stop motor, Pribyl is a raw but intriguing talent. A capable skater at full-speed, he will need to improve on his first few steps to be as good as he can possibly be.

Upside: Top-six forward, 25-25-50
