2011-12: Lukas Jasek played for the Trinec Ocelari club in his hometown in eastern Czech Republic near Slovakia.

He scored 1 goal with 6 assists and was +2 with 4 penalty minutes in five playoff games. 

2012-13: Jasek played at three levels of hockey in the Czech Republic for Trinec, appearing in two games with the Ocelari U20 team and splitting the year between the club’s U18 and U16 squads. He played internationally for the Czech Republic U17 and U16 teams. Jasek was +1 with no points nor penalties in U20 play. He scored 21 goals with 29 assists and was +27 with 4 penalty minutes in 38 regular season games and was +7 with 2 goals and 7 assists in nine playoff games with the Ocelari U18 team. He scored 20 goals with 14 assists in 15 games for the Trinec U16 team. Playing for the Czech U17 team he had 2 assists with 2 penalty minutes. In 10 games for the Czech U16 team he scored 5 goals with 2 assists and was -3 with 6 penalty minutes. In June 2013 Jasek announced that he would play for the Sodertalje club in Sweden in the 2013-14 season. 

2013-14: Jasek played in 25 SuperElit league games with the Sodertalje U20 team — splitting the year between the club’s U20 and  U18 squads — and played for the Czech Republic at the U18 and U17 levels. He scored 2 goals with 2 assists and was -4 with 10 penalties in SuperElit play. Jasek scored 5 goals with 7 assists in 15 games for the Sodertalje U18 team and was +1 with 4 penalty minutes. In seven games for the Czech U18 team he had no points and was -2 with 2 penalty minutes. He was not part of the silver medal squad at the 2014 World Juniors. Jasek scored 5 goals with 2 assists and was an even plus/minus with 4 penalty minutes in 10 games for the Czech U17 team.  

2014-15: Jasek returned to Trinec, skating in 28 Czech Extraliga games with Trinec Ocelari and playing for the club’s junior squad. He had 2 assists and was -3 with 4 penalty minutes in 27 regular season Extraliga games and had no points or penalty minutes in his only playoff appearance. Jasek scored 10 goals with 17 assists and had an even plus/minus with 6 penalty minutes in 24 games for the Ocelari U20 team. Jasek was ranked 23rd amongst international skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Vancouver in the sixth round (174th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft. 

Talent Analysis
Jasek is a very hard working, mid-sized winger who is very agile and adept on his skates. He tends to stick out due to his hustle and jumpy play and can even generate a number of passing and shooting options through his skating that many other players may not even think of. He’s enthusiastic everywhere from the locker room to the ice and plays a smart, team-first game. Jasek's hands are quite smooth and there’s little worry about him one day generating lots of opportunities. He simply possesses that combination of on-ice intelligence and the hands to pull off the timely moves or passes. He’ll never be a giant out there and the slight frame and average height could hold him back over the long run. Jasek has a good offensive tool box and speed to burn. Brings energy to every shift. Needs to add strength and work on the defensive side of the puck. Could evolve into a feisty, energy line player with some good offensive upside.
Future
Jasek will return to Trinec for 2015-16 and gain more experience playing against men in the Czech elite league. He will be only eighteen years old for the 2015-16 season so he has plenty of time to grow his game. He may be brought over to North America as early as 2016-17, depending on his development and willingness to leave his homeland.

The Vancouver Canucks have two of the best players in all of US college hockey in Thatcher Demko and Brock Boeser. Both players have Canucks fans excited about the future of the franchise. With the Canucks on pace for their worst finish since the late 90s, the timing of Boeser and Demko’s emergence is a great relief to management and the fan base. Read more»

As the 2015-16 season gets underway the Vancouver Canucks find themselves in an unfamiliar situation. For the first time in many years the Canucks actually have some prospects that could push a few of the veterans for NHL jobs. Aside from Bo Horvat there has been very little homegrown talent injected into the Canucks lineup in recent memory. The fans and the Canucks organization are excited at the prospect of some youth being injected into the team as the current core group is nearing the end of their careers. Read more»

The Vancouver Canucks prospects pool might be the least of the franchise’s worries at this moment in time. Ranked right in the middle of the league prior to the 2015 NHL Draft, the group boasts some areas of strength but fails to inspire much confidence on the whole. There is some quality (especially at center) and some quantity (especially on defense) and the Canucks added more of both to the prospect pool. Read more»
