He hasn't found his game in the OHL yet. He has good moves, can get the puck to the slot and has great puck control, but he also has a tendency to skate with his head down. It seems Hartsburg has finally found a bodyguard for him in Brendan Biggers. To be fair, Jiri only played a handful of games with the Hounds before being injured for six weeks and was eased back into the line-up by being played with the rookie line since his return. When he has gotten serious ice time on the PP and PK he has been a factor.
His development has been a bit slow in my opinion, but he has had a real screwed up season so far. I expect him to get better and become a dominant player for the Hounds in our playoff drive.
And, as an added bonus, if he doesn't make the leafs (which is doubtful) next season, he will be back with the Hounds.
But Knight fans will have their own opinion of Jiri after this weekend
i've seen him twice, and haven't been overly impressed with his play, but he's not a bad hockey player, like it was said above he must not have found his OHL game yet, becasue he did great in the NHL training camp, and the AHL when he was there.
