Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Bukac is one of my sleeper picks. He lacked some confidence, but his physical skills are legitimate, and he should flourish once he gets more comfortable in North America." (Cass Bruni, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "A raw talent who had an inconsistent season. His physical skills are tremendous for his size. He has good feet and edgework that allow him to walk the offensive line well and change the angle of his shots. He also can evade defenders and escape pressure in his own end because he can turn quickly away from forecheckers." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Advanced skater for his size, who uses a long stride to get to pucks quicker than expected all over the ice. ... Huge, but underdeveloped, frame is only going to get stronger, helping in board battles." (Red Line Report)
