He is 6-2, 210 and plays for Brandon in the WHL.
He had 32 goals and 25 assists last season along with 75 PIM.
Central Scouting, which had him ranked 50th in their Final Rankings, says, "He showed quick feet on every shift, created chances and played at a good pace with good instincts." (NHL.com)
He is ranked 123 by Future Considerations who says that he projects to be a bottom-six character forward.
- "Nejezchleb is a big forward who can really get moving in a hurry. Has a high skating posture and long strides that make him dangerous in open ice."
- "He is a very skilled forward who has good stick-handling skills. With time, Nejezchleb has become more confident to experiment with a broad selection of moves. Creativity and ability with the puck are impressive."
- He has a quality wrist shot that he can get off quickly and with good velocity. He is a quality puck mover, and has good vision that he uses to create high-quality chances for his teammates while showing little hesitation.
- The main downfall to his skill game is that he sometimes tries to be too crafty instead of making a simple play.
- He is beginning to use his body more, becoming a monster along the boards by out muscling and outwitting opponents.
- "His checking game leaves a lot to be desired. He takes some questionable routes to pucks at times, and due to his high posture, he tends to get his hands up when making contact, putting himself at risk of taking bad penalties. His defensive game is still evolving as well."
From the Rangers: "Nejezchleb established career-highs in games played (66), goals (32), assists (25), and points (57) with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League (WHL) this past season. The Prague, Czech Republic native led the team in goals and ranked fifth on the team in points. Nejezchleb added nine points (five goals, four assists) in nine playoff games."
