Highlights

1-time U20 WJC Bronze Medal 1

In the offensive zone, Å apovaliv mostly plays the role of a facilitator. Fully aware of his skill set, the Czech centre often opts to slow the game down to a pace at which he's comfortable, holding the puck and letting lanes develop before striking with surgical precision as a passer. A technically skilled playmaker, Å apovaliv consistently found ways to get the puck under sticks and through bodies. -EliteProspects 2022 NHL Draft Guide
