Stars' scout Jimmy Johnston on Radek Faksa
Here's scout Jimmy Johnston's take on first round pick Radek Faksa, a center from Kitchener of the Ontario Hockey League:
He’s got good size; he’s a smart kid on both sides of the puck. He’s good in the defensive zone, he’s good offensively. He can create offense and he can understand the other side of the game, too. He’s just a real good two-way player.
“He might be one of the best players this year in protecting the puck with his body. He uses his legs really well. He has the size and the reach. He played on the first power play and he played the point on the power play.
“There is a lot to like about him. He’s young and he’s got lots of growth left in him. He’s a big kid with lots of improvement potential. Plus, it’s an area we need.”
