Karabacek finished his first season in North America playing in 65 games, scoring 21 games and adding 26 assists. A solid offensive season in his rookie campaign, he isn’t a flashy player, and doesn’t necessarily have the wow factor in terms of pulling skill moves. However, Karabacek knows where he needs to be and gets there. He’s a smart player who finds scoring opportunities and will pick on defenders with his great wrist shot, using them as a screen.

He has a good touch on his passes as well, but also exhibits strengths in other aspects of the game. He can play in traffic, is willing to fight in concerns and doesn’t shy away from the physical side of things. Some solid long term upside with this winger.
