Report: Radovan Bondra Returning To Juniors

According to Scott Powers at The Athletic, Blackhawks prospect Radovan Bondra will return to juniors for the 2017-18 season.

Bondra, 20, split the 2016-17 season between the Vancouver Giants and Prince George Cougars in the WHL. He posted 32 goals and 31 assists in 62 combined games. He also represented Slovakia at the World Junior Championships, appearing in five contests. At the end of the season Bondra appeared in five games with the Rockford IceHogs but was held without a point.

Powers notes that the Blackhawks still hold Bondra’s rights through the 2019 season and look to get him signed for next season.

  1. He has some obvious tools so there must be something lacking up to this point-hopefully he grows this year (in other ways than height-weight).

  2. Numbers here too alot of elc contracts this year, better to sign him next year as he will need some time if he is going to be an nhl player.

  3. He is only 20, still growing into his body. If his mind and obvious skill set is already there, then it’s just a matter of time to gain confidence at higher levels. Hopefully a stud in the making. In Bowman we trust.
