Coyotes select Jan Jenik with 65th overall pick

The Czech winger/center is one of the youngest players of the draft.

The Arizona Coyotes selected Jan Jenik from HC Benatky nad Jizerou of the Czech league with their 65th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Jenik is a 6’1” left handed right wing/center who was born in Nymburk, of the Czech Republic. He played for every level of the Bili Tygri Liberec team and finished the season with a record of 4-7-11 in 30 games with their Czech2 league team. He is also one of the youngest players in the draft having just made the cutoff by being born on September 15, 2000. He was ranked as the 16th best European skater by NHL Central Scouting and was 58th on Bob McKenzie’s draft board.

According to Habs Eyes On the Prize he has a strong work ethic and is very competitive.

“His stick-handling around the net is strong, giving him the chance to rely on his skill even in areas where space is limited. He works well with time and space on the ice, and can solve one-on-one situations in many ways.“

Welcome to the Pack, Jan!
