NameNote TypeNoteWriterGame WatchedGame DateDate ViewedGame Number
Adam BenakNoteFast up ice with the puck, tries to dangle through a couple of defenders and does, but gets tripped (no call) and slides hard into the end boards.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteQuick but so small at 5'6.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteHigh slot at speed, dangles his man, loads and fires a wrist shot that clips the goalie's shoulder and drops behind him but skitters to the side of the crease. Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteHis speed is excellent, and he is light on his feet.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteLow right side on the powerplay, playing just above the goal line, and when he gets the puck he's in complete control of the entire zone.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteHis weight shifting and edgework makes him extremely ellusive and agile.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteHits the puck holder on the boards. Not hard, but he's getting in there.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteHis confidence in possession, and the ability to puckhandle in any conditions or threats, is elite level stuff.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteIf he gets to 5'9, he'll be an NHL superstar.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteTakes a dirty, high hit from Spellacy. He was down for a minute, but then up and ready for the powerplay. Between that hit and his hard knock into the boards earlier in the game, he's taking a beating but still highly effective. Tough kid.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteSlips his man, fires on net, and Kubiesa puts away the rebound.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteCongested slot area, he's on the move left to right, and a kicked puck comes to his feet. He one-touches a no-look pass back between his feet onto the tape for what should have been an easy goal. That play made me gasp. So fast, so creative, so well executed.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteWrist shot low far side is difficult for the netminder, because he has to expect everything from Benak and can’t cover it all. Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakNoteAnother excellent pass for a tap-in goal. Perfect.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
Adam BenakSummaryFar and above every player in this game despite being a year younger. He is an amazing prospect in every way, save his height. Incredible hockey iq and hands to match the processing speed. Quick, agile, nearly untouchable, and showed some physicality and toughness, too. He just has to get taller to get his fair chance. Super talented.Brian FogartyCzechia vs US (Hlinka-Gretzky 2023)7/31/20239/20/202310291
