What about this guy? http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=280005

Never heard of him, just found his name, still 16 year old, tall, already scored a few goals in Polish league...

Looks really good But I have never saw him. He probably doesn't play in play-off. I think he should go to czech junior league until he has this opporunity. In Trinec or Vitkovice he will make progress. They know how to work with young talents (Růžička, Jašek, Svoboda, Štencel, Klok, Zdráhal etc.). If one of these teams have one of the best polish talents, it will be favourable for them. They can obtain some polish fans. Or he should go to CHL. If he stays at home, he will be only on Chmielewski level imo.

Jeziorski has looked impressive at the recent U18 WC. I watched him score a really nice goal against GB. Seems to have good speed and likes carrying the puck. Hope he does well.

Have you seen him live or "only" through stream?

On a total side note, why hasn't hockey been developed in Poland, although the majority of their neighbors are hockey made or at the very least country's with much better programs?

My best guess is that the proximity to a hockey rink is a factor. From what I have seen, hockey rinks are only in larger cities and for most people it is usually an hour or so drive. There also isn't enough interest at a country level. Poland was once decent a long time ago, but since then the interest in hockey has really died off.

So it is a combination of proximity to rinks and the motivation to drive a bit to get to the rink. That may explain why there isnt a steady stream of prospects.

But Poland has been improving lately in ice hockey, they recently gained promotion into the World Championship Ia league.

Here is the national team squad:

If distance to the rink is a problem wouldn't there be an impetus to build more rinks?

Who pays for the rinks? Who do the rinks benefit financially if at all?

If the demand is there you can pay for rinks through fees.

I personally don't see great demand for it. Poland is more interested in volleyball, handball, tennis, skiing, and ski jumping than it is in hockey. I'd love to see some effort put into growing hockey in Poland, there is no reason Poland can't be a force in hockey, how much do we differ genetically from our neighbours?

That's what I'm thinking, and I just wonder if there were any social reasons through Poland's past in terms of why they've never wanted to develop or the country just doesn't care about hockey that much?

He is a very big talent in the U18 Czech Jr. League for Pirati, big enough in fact that there is strong suspicion he will be playing for the Czech Jr. NT's soon.
The reason I say this is because he did not play for Poland in the recent U18 WC, and other major junior tournaments lately. His club team was not involved in any playoffs, so he was free to join the Polish NT and did not.
The Czech's would not want him if he was just another average jr. player, especially going out of their way to pouch him away from Poland. He is also being heavily scouted by teams from OHL, WHL, and QMJHL.
At 16 y/o he led his league in scoring this season as well.

Nice , this looks like my Polish NT on modified version of EHM2007 where I naturalized NA players with Polish ethnicity.
Poland has been playing in top 16 for last 5 seasons or so, on average finishing 10.

Hockey seems to be a regional sport in Poland, mostly popular in the south of Poland around the Czech and Slovak border, although lately it's gaining interest in markets in Poznan and Lodz.

But overall you're right, tradition of the sport is not as strong and seems like it mostly died off with the fall of communism. The Polish Ministry of Sport and Tourism greatly reduced funding for it after the fall of communism, probably because of the price to build rinks and buy and maintain equipment. When my father was growing up in Poland, in the 60's and 70's hockey was the #1 winter sport and he remembers playing on ponds and frozen over streets with those old skates you bolt onto your shoe.
It's unfortunate countries around Poland such as Czech Rep., Slovakia, Belarus, continued to invest in hockey after the fall of communism, but Poland stopped.

I also thought about czech player with polish origin. These never played in czech national team: Marosz, Kucsera, Sztefek, Kania. They can be same case like Raszka. Especially Marosz can be great reinforcement.

I found this list of czech U18 most points winners:

http://www.eliteprospects.com/awards...0Most%20Points

I think he should be also succesful. Half of the winners are great players. I only want to ask, if Alan can play in polish national team although he will never play in polish league?

Chomutov's U20 team is extremely succesful and works with young players well (Kaše brothers, Kämpf, Šulák). Next year will be Chomutov's coach Vladimír Růžička and he likes young players. Maybe will come first A-team opportunity

I hope Alan will become player on european level, who will lead polish national team to highest group. But I don't believe he will play in NHL when he will stay in Czech republic. If he wants to play NHL, he probably should go to CHL next year.

This is a good question, I'm not 100% clear on the IIHF ruling regarding if a player has to play professionally or only in junior leagues for two seasons in the league of the country he wishes to represent. Alan did play for the junior teams in Podhale Nowy Targ prior to going to Chomutov, so if junior leagues count he could play for the senior team, also he has played multiple times for the U-16, U-18 and U-20 Polish NT so I'm assuming the answer is yes. He can of course change his mind and play for a different senior NT team once he's met the min. seasons played in a different league.

In this interview in the Polish press he did say his goal is to play in the NHL, even going to camps in Canada in the off season. He said next year (2015-2016) he would be eligible for the CHL draft and seems like he would go that way.

At WC1A Kolusz had very good performance... Any interest from better europian league? Pasiut also played really good. Two or three players in Sweeden or Finland can help national team.

Alan looks to be a third round pick and he is supposed to represent Poland at the up coming World Championships being held in Poland. Would be cool for the future of Polish hockey to make his NT debut in Poland.

I agree, however they should have done this earlier in their career, and this goes for a few other Polish players who prefer to be a star in a low level league over a role player in a stronger league. Some of the younger players like Chmielewski or Lyszczarczyk and others have a bit more ambition to try their luck beyond Poland's borders.

Yes, I believe he will first play in the U18 Div. 2A WC and then attempt to get a spot on the senior Div. 1A WC team. I think it will be a good experience for him playing in Poland at the WC, he may not get a great amount of ice time being younger but nonetheless it will help him grow.

One Polish prospect who could have a bright future is Patryk Wronka from Podhale Nowy Targ. He's a very dynamic, creative, 20 year old with great vision of the ice. At his early age he's quickly becoming the Polish NT's brightest player. I think in a year or two he should be able to join a solid club in the Czech league or even in Sweden or Finland.

It all depends on if he will leave Poland. Something becoming more common though for young poles.
