Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Has an 'A-Frame' stance (knees together, feet wide). Crouch is a little low. Glove position is at 3 o'clock position and in line with his body. Good skater. Has good skills, catches well. Likes to handle the puck. Very good awareness of close-in plays, scrambles. Overuse of the reverse-vertical-horizontal for post coverage. Down early. Vulnerable on high shots because of low crouch, but covers the low ice very well. Has pro potential with more development." (Phil Myre, ISS Scout)

• "Although Tomas has some good athletic skills and size, he can play erratic at times, especially when sliding laterally in the butterfly position. He sometimes plays over-aggressive, and this takes him out of his position and out of his crease on some slides. Tomas has the mobility to be in the right spots, but he lacks the fundamentals to be a consistently in position. In addition, Vomacka has shown that he can let pucks squeak past him, especially through his arms." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
