Ondrej Kase really stood out this season with his speed, skill and the way he gets the puck to the net both beutiful and how in the world did that puck find the back of the net.
The Ducks Director of AHL/NHL Scouting Martin Madden said on Kase, “He’s a really smart, skilled offensive winger. He’s got competitiveness, determination, hockey sense and skill.” Kase showed that in the 2017-18 season.
Kase is the youngest (21 years, 350 days old) to score on a penalty shot in Ducks franchise history.
According to the Ducks, “Head coach refers to him as the club’s “energizer bunny” for his tirless work ethic. “He can play with pace, can make plays in small areas, can create space from himself, and he’s not afraid to go into those areas,” Carlyle said. “He’s a fearless player for his size. And he goes into the areas and can make plays with good players.”
Season outlook according to the Anaheim Ducks:
Contract negotiations continue for Kase (and Nick Ritchie), according to Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Murray at a recent Orange Alliance member Q&A event. There remains the possibility that negotiations could go into September and even into the season, but the Ducks GM is hopeful the deals are done before then. “This is the one time where we have a little leverage,” he said to Orange Alliance members. “Nowadays when you don’t get very much leverage with the players, you have to take advantage of it. We’ll fight the good fight and be fair with them. But it could go just like with Hampus [Lindholm] and Ricky [Rakell].”
So ready to see recently signed Czech native to explode and succeed out on the ice this coming season.
