With their fifth selection at the 2019 NHL Draft, the Edmonton Oilers drafted centreman Tomas Mazura out of Kimball Union Academy.
At 6’3″ and 181 pounds, the Oilers continued their trend of taking bigger prospects with their sixth round selection. Mazura, a native of Sezemice, Czech Republic, has spent the past three seasons with Kimball Union Academy after coming over to North America to attend the prep school and pursue his hockey dreams. In his first two years at KUA, Mazura battled a collarbone injury which kept him off the ice for eight months and limited his ability to train and progress. However, in his third season with KUA, the left-handed Mazura was finally healthy enough to have his playmaking ability came to the forefront, and he rode those skills to his best offensive totals yet. As a result of his success, Mazura has committed to playing at Providence College for the 2020-21 season.
In 37 games played with Kimball Union Academy, Tomas Mazura amassed 14 goals and 40 assists for 54 points which led his team scoring.
WHO IS TOMAS MAZURA
As we get into the later rounds, it can be tough to find much information about these kids but I dove into the Internet machine anyway to root around for whatever I could. Here’s what I found on Mazuna:
In his third year at the school, this was his first season as a major contributor. After coming over to the United States from his native Czech Republic, he played on the school’s junior varsity team during the 2016-17 season. Last season, an injury derailed his sophomore campaign.
However, his game took off to a whole new level during the 2018-19 season. He led the Wildcats in scoring with 14 goals and 40 assists, and it all came to a culmination with a championship.
