RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Petr Straka.
Straka is a speedy center and a former second-round draft pick. Though he's only 20, Straka netted 41 goals and 41 assists in 55 games last season in the QMJHL. He has a goal-scoring prowess that could warrant a late-round pick in a keeper league. Still, given his youth and the Flyers' depth at center, look for him to start the season polishing his skills in one of the minor league affiliates.
Injuries cut short his QMJHL season and his production suffered, but he bounced back to score four points in five playoff games for Rimouski. Straka has the speed and sniper mentality to make an impact, but his top priorities this season in the Q are staying healthy and showing consistent effort.
Smooth-skating prospect scored 28-36-64 in 62 QMJHL games last season, his first in North America.
