SenShot’s Take

Faksa was one of the breakout players of 2012.  A rookie for the Kitchener Rangers, he led all first year players with 66 points (29 goals) in 62 games.  He was a member of the Czech Republic team in the World Juniors as a 17 year old and gained notice despite seeing limited action.

Faksa could end up being the steal of the draft and goes to a Washington club that would suit his top end skill level.
