That is crazy that he had a 5 assist game in the World Juniors.

Hey guys,

I'm a STH for the Sudbury Wolves and Kubalik quickly became one of my favorite players on the team this past season. He received limited ice-time earlier into the season but become more and more trusted as the season progressed. He can put the puck in the net using his offensive instincts around the net and bang away loose pucks, but I wouldn't expect him to ever be an offensive force in the NHL. Kubalik is a good PK'er and is defensively responsible with good skating.

He may one day become a bottom-6 player in the NHL, but if that's ever going to happen it won't be for a while. It'll be interesting to see how he does next season with more ice-time with the Sudbury Wolves. For a 7th round pick, I think you guys made out quite well.

Thank you for the information! Hopefully he can have a good camp, then go back and contribute to Sudbury some more!

Seems like Kubalik has started really well for HC Pilzen in the Czech league.

5 goals in his first 7 games.

Not as good as it once was, but still a professional league and he has just turned 20.

Trying to catch some games via stream.

That is wrong. Kubalik is still Kings property. Since he left junior before 20 he remains LA property until June 1, 2017.

It's a little known quirk of the CBA. Most junior players would have their rights expire after 2 years. Since he left for Europe at 19 his rights change from 2 years to 4 years.

Still going strong. Nice assist and PP goal last night. He's quite big too.

8 goals and 4 assists in 12GP.

Could there be a chance the Kings will give him another look ?

If he wears a low cut top or shows a little leg, then yes

Same. When he left, sounded like he was inconsistent and the offense had fizzled. But glad to hear he's putting the offensive part together, never know, may turn into an NHLer, but glad for him that it looks like he has a pro future period.

I've watched,followed LA Kings draft picks for decades(4)!And with the recent rash of giving away our first rounders(reminds me of the 70's) LA better have Kubalik back on the radar for the future.Now I know that LA's strength on the forward ranks is suddenly LW nothing pushes players than a few nipping at their heels from the prospect pool,Farm System!!!

With Dave Taylor as GM, he would have been back already.

He liked Czechs/Slovaks.

Doubled his point production and tripled his goal production in less than half of the games he played last year. Late bloomer? Dunno if we have anyone that watches the Czech leagues regularly on these boards, I'll drop by the prospect board and see if we can get more!

I don't really watch HC Plzen's games but he is playing really well from what I've heard. He will have an international debut in November on Karjala Cup

Seems to be tied for the club lead in scoring on a very good team...also playing with Marcel Hossa, fun fact

Can't really find any highlights though since I can't read it

I've gotta say..... those goals? Those are all garbage goals. There are no examples of an amazing shot or incredible stick handling..... Kubalik does, however, have a knack for being in the right place at the right time. That's important. He tries hard, too.

Yeah none of them were 'special' from a talent standpoint, that's for sure...but at least he's driving the net or already there in each one.
