News 4 Premier Prospect: Martin Necas

His outstanding season playing in his country's senior pro league could vault him into the top 10

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — As we count down to the NHL Draft on June 23rd in Chicago, our second News 4 Premier Prospect is center Martin Necas, a Czech center who put together an impressive season playing in his native country’s Extraliga… as a 17-year-old.

Here’s the lowdown on Necas:

Position:

Center

Height/Weight:

6’1, 170 lbs

Team:

Kometa Brno

In one sentence:

A playmaking center who admittedly needs to bulk up, Necas is a skilled skater with a strong shot who put up historically good numbers in the Extraliga as a 17-year-old and could translate that early success into a high draft selection.
