Kase started off the season picking up six points in 31 games in the highest league before being loaned to SK Kadan, where he has picked up four points in his first five games. Coming from a hockey family, his younger brother is currently playing at the U20 level while his father, a former player, coaches in the Czech Republic.
Offensively, Kase has a wide range of weapons that help to make him an effective weapon. He may not be the fastest guy on the ice, but rather he is a slick, slippery winger, frustrating opposing defenders using his agility, creativity and puck skills. And while he has a good wrist shot, Kase is really effective at utilizing his teammates. With great vision and hockey sense, he displays great awareness and ability in passing the puck.
Despite his smaller size, Kase isn’t afraid to go toe-to-toe with bigger players though, refusing to back down. He plays with a ton of energy and has a great willingness to battle.
The natural playmaker has done well at the second level of hockey in the Czech Republic, scoring at almost a point per game clip. His offensive potential and his willingness to battle are a very intriguing combination.
