Filip Mesar

Filip Mesar looked great at Canadiens camp in 2022 and it seemed like he was going to explode in the OHL, but it didn’t work out that way. It was weird considering he had played his last two seasons in the Slovakian professional league, which gave him some experience playing against professionals. He played alongside Francesco Pinelli with the Kitchener Rangers, and he was just okay, scoring 51 points (17 goals & 34 assists) in 52 games.

His near-point-per-game totals weren’t awful, but there were definitely expectations for him to produce more, considering the style of player that he is. Mesar is a speedster, and the rest of his game operates around that, he has quick hands and a decent shot, that comes off fast because of how fast he is moving. Defensively he needs some work, and a couple of years to address his inefficiencies and refine his offensive strength will do him well, which is why I feel two years with Laval will do wonders for his confidence.
