Pavel Jenys

Darren Walker

Jenyš is a big forward who looked amazing early on this season, but a lack of ice time in the Extraliga eventually hurt him more than expected. Looks like they should have kept him among juniors. Anyway, he’s a force when he’s on the ice, and he’s got that kind of vision. He looks like he just knows what to do and when to do it. You’d expect him to be a great passer, but that’s not the case as he’s a shoot-first forward. His shot is a real great one with top-notch velocity and accuracy, one of the best I’ve seen all year. Even though he’s not the best puckhandler, he’s a pretty effective carrier who uses his size to his advantage. That also makes him stand out while off the puck in areas in front of the net or along the boards. Defensively, he needs to step up. He can do it, but it looks like he doesn’t want to do it all the time. His character is questionable, but when he wants to, he can really make a difference. Proper motivation is the key when it comes to him. (May 2014)
