Dominik Uher struggled in the AHL last season | 09/09/2013 9:04 AM
NewsDominik Uher struggled during his first professional season in 2012-13.
ImpactThe native of the Czech Republic came to North America in 2009 and played three seasons with Spokane of the WHL, getting drafted by the Penguins in the fifth round of the 2011 Draft. He had only four goals and seven points in 54 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton as he found the jump from the juniors to the AHL difficult. "The pro league is much harder," Uher said. "You play against actual men, not just junior kids. The speed and the physicality in that league was really different. I had some hard times, but I'm glad that season is behind me and now I know what I'm going to be in, and I'm really looking forward to the season." Uher projects to be a bottom six forward if he ever makes it in the NHL and should not be considered in drafts at any time in his career unless he lucks out and gets to play alongside Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.
