With the 21st overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, the New York Rangers select Filip Chytil from HC Zlin of the Czech Extraliga.
Chytil is a talented two-way winger with high offensive potential. One of the youngest players available in the draft, he brings an exceptionally speedy game that sees him using him making offensive plays on the go. His combination of both his speed and hands make him an offensive threat anytime he’s on the move. The young Czech’s stickwork absolutely makes him a threat. Despite being more a team first player, Chytil possesses the ability to release a hard wrist shot that is also relatively accurate.
Chytil doesn’t have the highest ceiling, but his offensive skills are certainly intriguing. He projects largely as a middle-six player.
