Scouting Report

Strengths: Is a physical player who can lay
on some solid hits. He plays a safe defensive game.
Weaknesses: Has little offensive instincts.
Isn’t the best skater.
Projected Role: Seeing as Montreal has an abundance of defensemen similar to Linhart, it is
unlikely that he’ll make the team in the future.


There’s still a chance that Tomas Linhart may be a late bloomer, but he
hasn’t shown the desire to play in North America after spending only 2
seasons in the OHL early in his carreer.

Linhart has spent the last 4 seasons playing in the Czech Republic with
the Pardubice HC. In 30 games this season, Tomas Linhart has only 1 goal and
1 assist. He’s collected 34 PIM during that span. Linhart has never scored
more than 2 points in a season.
