In the sixth round, the Flyers tabbed Czech-born right winger Placek.
Placek is an imposing force on the ice (6'4", 210 pounds) who—with time—could develop into a very good player. He has chosen to attend Harvard instead of turning professional immediately, which should be of great benefit to his development.
He missed most of his senior season due to injury, so, like Noebels, he could be a big steal here.
Because he is so young and raw, the Flyers may let him play out his career at Harvard before signing him, and so he will likely not make an impact for quite some time.
Look for Placek to break onto the scene during the (gulp) 2015-2016 season.
Assuming he plays four years at Harvard, which he seems set on doing, he should be capable of immediately fighting for call-ups during that season, while becoming a main fixture for the team in the years to follow.
