Prospect reminds of Rinne

With comparisons to Pekka Rinne, David Honzik wants to prove he can play at the next level.

It didn't take long for scouts to find the correlation.

Pekka Rinne was busy pulling rabbits out of hats in the National Hockey League playoffs, carrying a young, overachieving team in an unlikely run to the second round. A few weeks earlier, a young, Czech goaltender revealed those same rabbits by carrying his junior team in an unlikely first-round upset.

David Honzik, a 17-year-old rookie, was simply every bit as special during the Victoriaville Tigres' run as Rinne had been with the Predators.

Can you say, USELESS PICK?!

I guess this goes to show we CAN'T successfully trade down like Detroit, and make use of multiple picks

The Goalie Guild - Beautiful choice by VAN to take my sleeper David Honzik. Was excited to see where he would go. Knew he would go fairly high. Great pick.

David Honzik never had a goalie coach before this season. Stronger second half, posted second highest save percentage in QMJHL playoffs.

DAVID HONZIK
NORTH AMERICAN GOALIE
VICTORIAVILLE, QMJHL
FINAL RANK: 13
MIDTERM RANK: 8
POSITION: GOALIE
CATCHES: LEFT
HEIGHT: 6' 2"
WEIGHT: 209
BORN: AUGUST 9, 1993
BORN IN: TABOR, CZE


History
2008-09: Honzik played for Karlovy Vary's U-18 squad. In 32 games, he turned in a 2.66 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage. In 2 playoff games, Honzik posted a 4.65 goals-against average and a .863 save percentage.

2009-10: Honzik again played for the Karlovy Vary U-18 team. In 38 games, he registered a 2.62 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage. In 3 playoff games, Honzik posted a 2.53 goals-against average and a .904 save percentage. Honzik played for the Czech Republic at the 2010 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, posting a 4.00 goals-against average and a .872 save percentage. Honzik was chosen in the first round, 33rd overall, of the 2010 CHL Import Draft by the QMJHL's Victoriaville Tigres.

2010-11: In his QMJHL rookie season, Honzik played in 36 games for the Tigres. He posted a 3.54 goals-against average an a .884 save percentage. In 9 playoff games, Honzik finished with a 3.28 goals-against average and a .919 save percentage. Honzik played for Team Cherry at the 2011 CHL Home Hardware Top Prospects Game, giving up 4 goals in his team's 7-1 loss to Team Orr.

Talent Analysis
A big goaltender, Honzik moves very well in the crease. Playing a butterfly style, he sometimes drops down too quick, but thanks to his large frame, he takes up a large part of the net even when on his knees. With such noticeable improvement over the course of the season, some think that Honzik is just scratching the surface of his potential.

To those that will complain that we took a goalie...

If all goes well with Honzik, he will be ready in 6 or 7 years for the NHL, our goalie situation could be anywhere at that point.

Red Line Report had him as the 2nd best goalie behind Gibson

http://www.usatoday....prospects_n.htm

Next up is huge Czech David Honzik, who took a while to adapt to the North American playing style with Victoriaville in the Quebec League. Come playoff time, though, he was a force who stole a few games and nearly a series against the eventual Memorial Cup champion Saint John Sea Dogs. He finally began to trust his superior athletic gifts and allow his natural instincts and competitiveness to take over.

We needed another goaltending prospect anyways, he sounds like a pretty solid pick. We have some solid goaltenders behind Luongo and Schneider now, Lack, Cannata, and now Honzik.

It’s not hard to see why David Honzig is attracting so much attention from scouts heading into the 2011 NHL Draft this month, as the 6-foot-3, 194-pound goaltender has tremendous size to go with an abundance of raw talent. The Czech netminder went 20-12-1 this season in 36 games for the QMJHL’s Victoriaville Tigres, and posted a 3.54 goals against average, .884 save percentage and one shutout. Those totals put the rookie among the top 20 goalies in the league, and solidified his status as a highly touted prospect. Honzig was very solid between the pipes for the Tigres in the playoffs as well, going 5-3-1 in 9 games, with a 3.28 GAA, and incredible .919 save percentage. Along with having good size, the 17-year-old is technically and positionally sound, has a quick glove hand, moves well for a big guy, reads and anticipates the play very good, works very hard at perfecting his game, and won’t give up on a puck. He reminds me a little of a young Roman Turek in size and ability, and has some real potential to be a stellar pro. Last season, Honzik suited up for HC Karlovy Vary U18 squad, going 24-10-4 in 38 games, with a 2.62 GAA, and .906 save percentage. He also represented the Czech Republic at the 2010 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

he may be on the world junior team for the Czech's...

Compared to Rinne, fits Melanson goalie style by playing deep in his goal.

This just sets us up for success in the future when we're ready to trade Schneider. Face it, Schneider will never play as a Starter in Vancouver.

Luongo, Schneider (all but gone), Lack, Cannata, Honzik, Weimen.

NHL has him at 6'3" now.

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.


The idiocy on CDC....

For those asking about Honzik as a comparable to Pekka Rinne .... not even close. Dunno who said that, but yeah ... not comparable at all.

Exactly. If things go like expected, in 3 years Lack will probably be #2 behind Lou and we would need some fresh talent in Manitoba.... err I mean the minors.

I don't know why people are mad at this pick, he was incredible in the playoffs for the Tigres. Make no mistake about it, that team isn't in the playoffs nevermind getting to the 2nd round and giving the powerhouse Sea Dogs all they could handle.

Brilliant pick, we have goalies but we all know one is going to be traded, and honestly after Schneider and possibly Lack it's not very impressive.

How ironic, i said in another thread here a month ago or so that i thought we should draft him Posted Image He seems to be a big goalie that is fast for his size. He definitely has potential. Thought we could have got him later, but im happy Posted Image

I can't stand all the posters knocking Gillis for this pick based on team needs. Unless we drafted top 3, none of these players will fill our current needs, and not have a shot at the lineup for another 4-5 years, who knows where Luongo and Schneider will be at that point. You guys just come off as uneducated idiots posting crap about this choice.

I like this solid pick in Honzik, could very well be a steal in the draft. I would have liked to have taken him lower because of a few guys still avaliable to us to pick but im happy with this goalie selection.

From the videos it looks like he has amazing lateral movement - very fast going cross crease. I like this pick for the future.
