Flames Sign ’23 First Rounder, Samuel Honzek, to Entry Level Contract | 火焰隊簽下新秀球員 – 漢錫

The 18-year-old Slovakian is getting ready

“We were happy to have selected Samuel in this year’s draft and as equally pleased today to have him signed to his entry level agreement,” said Flames general manager Craig Conroy. “We entered the draft looking to add skill with size to our group and Samuel is a textbook example. He had an impressive showing at development camp, and we are excited to watch him build on that at main camp in September.”
