I doubt Pribyl was ever in play for Shawinigan, hope he get good ice time with his home club in czech republic but i doubt he get more than 4th line duties
Well, that's just how it goes overseas in Sweden, Finland, Czech Rep., Russia, etc. Underagers, almost no matter what, pay their dues in limited roles. It doesn't seem to adversely affect the good ones, as we've seen many times before (even the great Lidstrom, at 18, only played 20 games in a very limited role for Vasteras, for example). It's the practice icetime where the coaches really take the time to polish them up as teenagers.
