Teplý, Krutil Invited To Czech World Junior Camp

On Wednesday, two Blackhawks prospects were among those on the roster for the camp to determine the Czech roster at the upcoming World Junior Championships.

Forward Michal Teplý and defenseman Michael Krutil were drafted in the fourth round in 2019 and 2020, respectively, by the Blackhawks.

Teplý, 19, had 29 goals and 34 assists in 53 games for Winnipeg in the WHL last season. Listed at 6-3 and 193 pounds, he’s a creative offensive player who might find his way onto the ice in Chicago in the coming seasons.

Krutil, 18, is a bigger defenseman. Listed at 6-3 and 203 pounds, he appeared in nine international contests for the Czech team last year.

    The Blackhawks last 2 drafts will be well represented at upcoming wjc. Dach, Vlassic, Teply and Saarela from last year and Reichel, Commesso, Slaggert and Krutil from this years could possibly all be there. If it translates to Nhl success the future is looking up and also something that hasn’t been seen in recent years.

    Ian- could even throw in Kurashev, too, even though he was a 2018 draftee.

    See a list of world junior players with 12 not being there for the last few drafts is a good indicator of good players coming soon enough.

    86 was a gem at world juniors/best since Kaner gm/gmasses/scouts said when last held in lake placid.

    Should have a large wave of players who can play in the speed league and the type/kind of players the bottom 10 teams got lots of these kind of players from 10 yrs ago and they are top 10/ish teams now. They may have more then 1 Dach kind of player but not many with more then one 77 kind of player.

    Which means we are looking a top 10 roster in a couple yrs and thats before even adding a couple elite players with the cap space we ll have once cap hits reset for our roster.
