An experienced winger, Hlavac is a talented playmaker with excellent finishing. Even well into his 30s, Hlavac has no issues playing a high-tempo game thanks to good skating and very good hockey sense. He also has excellent stickhandling and possesses an accurate wrist shot with a quick release. (Matias Strozyk, 2010)
