Drafted: 2016 by the Tampa Bay Lightning, 37th overall

 

Observations:

 

June 2016 & – The Lightning traded up to take Hajek in the second round of the 2016 NHL draft. Hajek was the pick Tampa received for Anthony DeAngelo. Hajek is a two-way defender with some physical upside. Tends to ramp up his play when a game is on the line, but that can lead to poor decisions. Hajek will need to develop offensively and work on his decision-making in junior for a year or two. Max Marko

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

 

Hajek is a good transition defender, but will most likely be compared to Anthony DeAngelo due to the trade Tampa made to acquire him. Unfortunately for Hajek, he does not play the same type of game. Very defensive.
