Report #2

Jiricek's playing in the top men's league, for Plzen, in the Czech Extraliga. His offense has been slow to develop at the pro level. At the most recently completed U20 4 Nations tournament he was also held off the scoresheet despite being used in all situations 3GP.
Adam has excellent hockey sense. He identifies his responsibilities, in all three zones, very well.
What's missing, early on this year, is a bit more jump and aggressiveness. He fronts the play defensively, but he has room to attack his check and win pucks more often. Same goes for the offensive zone. He distributes fine, but when he gets a chance to direct a puck on net he needs to 'plan ahead' and release the play to the net quicker.
Remains one of the top defence prospects for the draft. Leans 2-way / Distributor. Needs time.

Good looking under age prospect for 2024 draft
Younger brother of Columbus draft pick David Jiricek
Similar to his brother in that he handles the puck very well and make plays offensively
Difference is Adam appears to lean distributor more than shooter
In time he will add more strength and weight. Used in all situations. Very good skater. Agile, quick to space. Sound hockey IQ already in place.
