In general, Korczak is a perimeter passer. What that means is that he attempts a lot more passes from the perimeter than down low and/or in the slot. But, while he will cross the perimeter at times to complete a pass, keep in mind that sometimes he doesn’t go that far in to attempt a pass. Throughout the 2020-2021 season, I noticed that Korczak recorded multiple primary assists when he skated slightly past the perimeter. In Korczak’s 2019-2020 campaign, in which he played nearly a full season, five of his 26 primary assists came from the perimeter. But, it’s clear that there was a massive uptick in perimeter pass attempts this past season.
When driving to the net, you will see Korczak struggle especially against more physical daunting defensemen like New York Rangers prospect Braden Schneider. He will struggle to work around them and the gap cancels out rather quickly. Korczak needs to grow and develop his upper body strength in order to push off defenders to open up space for himself.
On the forecheck, Korczak typically supervises/provides support and insurance when his teammates are in the trenches. This allows Korczak to provide his teammates with an open man should they win the puck battle.
