2019 Fantasy Outlook
Cernak was a complete revelation as a rookie in 2018-19. He came out of nowhere to play 58 games with the Bolts, most of which were spent in the top four. On many nights, Cernak was the best defender on the ice -- poised, physical and mature well beyond his 22 years. His offensive upside is probably limited, but 30 points are possible to go along with 80-90 PIM and 200 hits this season. There are a few leagues still out there where that type of contribution matters. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Kings in July 2015.
Gathers helper

September 17, 2020
Cernak had an assist, four shots on goal, three hits and two blocked shots in a 2-1 overtime win over the Islanders in Thursday's Game 6.
ANALYSIS
Cernak's shot attempt in the first period generated a rebound that Victor Hedman buried for the Lightning's first goal. Later in the contest, Cernak had a scary moment when he took a puck off the back of his head or neck, but he didn't miss any time. The Slovak has four helpers, 49 hits, 48 blocked shots and 27 shots on net through 19 contests.
