Dostal has impressed in his two starts at the U20 Four Nations tournament in Helsinki. Today, he got the start for the second game in a row for the Czech Republic. The Anaheim Ducks prospect stopped 33 of 34 shots as the Czechs defeated Finland 2-1 in overtime. He has displayed great agility and overall skating ability at the tournament. He is quick to cut down angles and moves effectively side-to-side. His rebound control has been stable, both on low and high shots. Dostal’s passing and play with the puck seem to be a work in progress. In both games, he went behind the net to stop pucks on dump-ins, but he didn’t always read those plays properly and would just try to rim the puck out of the zone. Dostal is athletic with very good reaction speed and has the ability to make the occasional desperation save. He seems to thrive in pressure situations and can make big saves to keep his team in games.
