Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Lauko has all the skills in the world -- good size, good skating and a good shot. However, his lack of consistency is something he will need to work on, as sometimes he can disappear for long stretches during a game. When he's on, he can affect the game at both ends of the ice. He also excels on the power play, where he played on the point with the Czech Under-17 team. He has a good shot, and can score from anywhere in the offensive zone."(HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "The skilled forward turned heads at the Under-17's last November with seven points in five games and then played 28 games in the Czech Elite League as a 16-year-old after tearing up Czech junior at both the Under-18 and Under-20 level. A go-to forward for the Czechs at the Ivan Hlinka." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)
