Czarnik is a talented offensive player who still has a lot of room to develop as a hockey player. He has good vision on the ice, a solid shot, and a developing two-way game.
Czarnik has developed slower than anticipated and he has seen his playing time and production decrease significantly. 2013-14 should be considered a statement year. With younger forwards coming into the system, Czarnik will have to prove he is worth keeping around.
