In the sixth round the Jackets went with their first European player, Czech centre Lukas Sedlak. He's an offensive centerman in the Ceske Budejovice system. Here are his particulars:
Hometown: Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic
Stats: 45GP / 14G / 13A / 27PTS
Lukas Sedlak, C Budejovice (Czech Republic)-- Good, solid defensive forward plays a North American-style game and doesn't score like Svihalek, but is a far better all-around forward. Thinks the game well and competes hard and finishes his checks. Has a soft touch on the puck and is good on faceoffs. Isn't a draft name, but could make some NHL team very happy in time-- has the attitude to be the kind of player who is more than the sum of his parts.
Sedlak was the captain of the Czech team at the 2011 U-18 Worlds, and will likely play in the Czech Republic for another season or two. Down the line, he and fellow Blue Jacket and Czech countryman Tomas Kubalik could form a potent 1-2 combo. They are both of similar size and skill level.
