Dominik Volek of the Regina Pats is featured today.
It was no secret, the Regina Pats weren't very good last season. They were a young hockey club and needed help in almost every area of their game.
A quick way to address many of those issues is through the CHL import draft. It's almost like a version of free agency for the CHL. You are free to grab European players who, in many cases, can instantly improve your team.
That's what the Pats have done with Dominik Volek. The Pats grabbed the Czech forward 9th overall this past summer.
His skating is not the prettiest as he has a low and awkward stride. But, he's got powerful legs and seems to have good top end speed once he gets going. As mentioned, he doesn't have great straight ahead acceleration but he does have solid quickness when it comes to stopping and starting or simply changing directions.
