Martin Necas

2018-2019 Season: 2 points (1 goals 1 assists)

2019-2020 Season projection: 19 points (11 Goals 8 Assists)

Martin Necas will start off the 2019-2020 season with the Carolina Hurricanes. Most of last season, Necas played with the Charlotte Checkers and played really well while there. Necas didn’t have a great preseason, however, and it remains to be seen if Julien Gauthier will overtake his role on the team. If Necas remains on the NHL level rather than Gauthier, don’t expect too much out of the rookie as he is still a work in progress.
