Highlights
1-time Czech Extraliga Champion 1

A talented playmaker, Straka is an experienced center whose hockey sense and passing-ability make him a threat, especially on powerplay. He still has decent skating and possesses a dangerous - both hard and accurate - shot. Straka's two-way skills aren't as impressive as his offensive skill-set and he is best used in a scoring-line. He has, however, been used in a variety of roles in recent years and has even logged minutes killing penalties.
(Matias Strozyk, 2010)
Father: Josef Straka
