“Mysak excels most in the offensive zone is as a forechecker. He takes smart routes to the puck, funnels opposition defenders towards support, and anticipates play well generally. He’s a north-south attacker and often attacks in a straight line.” – (EliteProspects, NHL Draft Guide)

“Mysak is a scoring winger with some line driving instincts, who uses a combination of skill and speed to generate points. He has a takeover approach that you can’t teach a player, and the speed necessary to take advantage of his mentality. When heading north-south, Jan features a powerful and fluid stride that doesn’t breakdown over distance. The edgework, pivoting ability, and acceleration lags slightly behind his top gear, but overall, we label it as very good and more than enough to transfer to the NHL.” – (HockeyProspect, Black Book)

“He moves through the offensive zone fluidly, finding open ice to create dangerous scoring chances. His shot is high-end with a lightning-quick release and he can change the angle with his unique puck work… A player that understands the game extremely well, possesses high hockey IQ and isn’t afraid to get physical.” – (FC Hockey, NHL Draft Guide)

“He plays much bigger than his 6-0” size, protecting the puck through traffic as he looks to play through the middle. When driving wide, he shows a consistent ability to get by defenders, putting them on his back as he cuts back in near the crease, possessing the hands and finishing ability to score on a large majority of these self-generated scoring chances.” – Brock Otten (McKeen’s Hockey, NHL Draft Guide)
