History
Talent Analysis

Sekac is a highly skilled winger with good puck possession skills and playmaking capabilities. The 21-year old has played two years in the KHL with solid results this past season but will need to be less of a perimeter player to have success in North American style game. His defensive game is not bad but could use more work and he needs to gains more strength and size. He possesses the potential to be a top six scoring forward at the NHL level.

Future

Sekac will be given a good opportunity out of the NHL training camp to make the Canadiens roster or could be sent to Hamilton in order to adjust to the North American physicality and speed. He could provide an offensive spark to either roster if playing on the top-six forward group.
