50 Players, 50 Days: Daniel Chladek

March 26, 2020

Bismarck Bobcats forward Daniel Chladek was one of the stars of the 2020 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament with three goals in two games.

During the current and unforeseen cancelation of the 2019-20 season, the players in the NAHL saw their seasons cut prematurely short. In some cases, players saw their junior hockey careers come to an end as well. However, the NAHL got together a decided to highlight some of those players, who were born in 1999 and were in their final season of playing junior hockey.

As a result, we present a new series entitled: 50 players in 50 days.

50 players in 50 days will select 50 players from each of the 26 NAHL teams this past season that were born in 1999, are currently uncommitted, and deserve some recognition during their time spent playing and developing in the NAHL. Over the course of the next 50 days, we will take time out to look at their accomplishments, review their season, and provide some background on their NAHL careers. Players will be initially highlighted in alphabetical order by team. Enjoy!

Bismarck Bobcats and Top Prospects forward Daniel Chladek, 20, put up more impressive numbers in his second and final season in the NAHL. The 6’2/200 lbs. native of Anaheim, California, showed plenty of consistency as he put up 28 points (12 goals, 16 assists) in just 40 games played during the 2019-20 season.

For his efforts, Chladek was selected to and played in the 2020 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament for the undefeated Central Division team. While there, Chladek shined on the big stage, producing three goals in the two wins and putting up a +4 rating.

Watch: Daniel Chladek highlights

Over the course of two seasons with the Bobcats, Chladek was remarkably efficient, posting 61 points in 84 career NAHL games, which included 34 goals, showing that he could definitely put the puck in the net.

“Daniel had a great year for us this year, and he had 19 goals last year as well. He has been a main stay guy to this group and is a big reason this group had the success they did. He has high-end skill and a great stick that allows him to make plays and score in tight areas,” said Bobcats head coach Layne Sedevie.

Prior to his time in the NAHL, Chladek spent his youth hockey days with the Anaheim Jr. Ducks.
