Martin Chromiak

The lone representative on Team Slovakia, Martin Chromiak has had a whirlwind 2020. After beginning last season in Slovakia’s highest-level ice hockey league, Chromiak made a late transition to the North American rink, playing for Kingston of the OHL.

There, he racked up the points-33 points in just 28 games. Had he made the transition sooner, he likely gets taken higher in the draft.

His track record in International play suggests he’s due for a breakout performance out the World Juniors. For Slovakia’s U18 team, Chromiak scored ten goals with 12 assists in 21 games. Last year, for the U20 team, he put up 15 points in 14 games.
