I know he is a year older

I would love to hear more about his style of play? He could be a gem of a late rounder
Well basically he is like 4 months older, but it's a different draft year.
I think Imaginary Threats already pointed out the biggest reason, his size, but then again sometimes size is not really that big an issue if the player is skilled, smart and tough enough.
I think Dominik is very skilled, but from what I've heard he often hangs on to the puck a little too long, especially in traffic. And while he can manage the resulting hits and even escape the traffic with the puck at the junior level, there could be some concern that his style of play will not transfer well to the pro level.
But it is still a long time to the draft, and if he keeps playing well, I am pretty sure some team will take a gamble on him in a late round.
