"He makes that good first pass, but the timing of jumping into the play and creating the offense at the pro level is something he's been working on," said Jeff Gorton, the Rangers' Assistant Director-Player Personnel. "I know he wants to get some numbers and be more of an offensive guy, and I would say based on his season and the fact that it won't be a new thing to him next year, you would expect some more offense out of him because I think he's trying to round out his game."
Here's Kundratek on his game...
"I always want to make good passes and make a good, smart play on defense. I also like to play hard in the corners and be a physical player," he said. "Next season I would like to work harder on the offensive part of the game and put up bigger numbers, but I also want to play really well in the defensive zone, make a good first pass over the blue line, and join the rush. I'd like to be able to do a little bit of everything."
...with the Rangers having so much defensive depth Kundratek could be a player the Rangers use to sweeten the pot in a trade to fill-in some holes.
...could be tough for this kid to crack the line-up.
