Defensive Game
Korczak is a hard worker. He is willing to support the defence down low, working to control the cycle game. However, his lack of size and strength can be an issue here. Korczak can be overpowered by bigger, stronger forwards working off the boards. His high-end hockey IQ is also an asset defensively. He reads the play well and uses good positioning and an active stick to cut down passing lanes. When turnovers are created, he is able to move the puck up the ice quickly in transition. Korczak could use some work in the face-off circle. This may come as he matures and gets stronger, leading to him winning more scrambled draws.

Projection and Comparison
Korczak has the potential to develop into a two-way centre who can play in the middle-six for an NHL team, contributing in all situations, if he is able to reach his potential. He will need time though. As a late birthday, he should head back to the WHL next year but can play in the AHL in 2022-23. With work on his strength and his shooting ability, he could really blossom. Korczak’s game is reminiscent of Brayden Point. However, this is a stylistic comparison only and not one based on skill and ability.
