Sedlak led all players with eight shot attempts and scored the lone Kärpät goal in a 4-1 loss to HIFK. The big Czech winger opened the scoring in the first period as he received the puck at the left circle and beat the goalie with an accurate far-side wrister. Sedlak has a heavy shot and he can be very dangerous when maneuvering into the middle of the ice. He has fast hands and he’s quite crafty offensively, possessing the ability to make skilled and clever moves in tight spaces. Sedlak skates well in a straight line, has decent mobility and can hit solid top speed. His intensity without the puck and decision making both looked improved from the past season. Sedlak is one of the most interesting re-entries in the league for the 2019 NHL Draft.
