I do think he needs to put on some weight. He's not afraid to get hit, he's just not willing to initiate the contact. If that's the case, I'd prefer it if he were stronger.
But for whatever that's worth, it doesn't seem to be a part of his game. He sees the ice better than the guy who's trying to hit him. Every other player on the czechs would have been stopped by that American defender(it might have been Tinordi actually), and Pribyl just made a cheeky little pass and it was a 2 on 1. So no, I don't think it's a problem: just a matter of time for him to adapt to the professional game.
As for who he plays like most, geez I'm not sure. Probably like a tall Marc Savard who was trained in Russia(he just has that cheekyness to his game).
Overall, I'm happy with his game, but he does have quite a ways to go. He has the tools, and it seems like he has the willingness.
