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.

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.
