So, Tomas Kubalik, You Want to be a Blue Jacket?

Our next to last mock interview takes place with Tomas Kubalik. Kubalik as a rookie, led the Springfield Falcons in scoring last season. By most accounts, his training camp experience this season with the Blue Jackets had positively built on that experience. That is, until suffering a concussion courtesy of Jason Gregoire in Winnipeg.

Q) Hi, Tomas. Tell us a little about yourself?

A) I am a 6' 2" right wing from Plzen in the Czech Republic. I turned 21 on May 1st. I was selected in the fifth round, 135th overall pick, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Q) Tell us about some intangibles you could bring to the Blue Jackets?

A) Over my past two seasons, I've gotten more assists than goals. I think at my size, I may be looked at as a player who wants to focus on goal scoring, but I have the ability to move the puck and go tape to tape to set up a teammate.

Q) What areas of your game do you think you can improve on?

A) Although I have had some success so far, I could improve my skating and effective use of my body.

Q) Can you give us some examples of your hockey accomplishments?

A) The 2007-08 season was a good one for me. Our team won the Under 18 World Junior Championships Gold Medal, and I had the most goals in the tournament. In the 2009-10 Under 20 World Juniors, I was selected as a "Top 3" on my team. I got my first taste of the National Hockey League late last season and in my first game I got two assists against the Washington Capitals.
