Jakub Kindl has all the tools needed to be a professional hockey player. He has good size, skates well, and can handle the puck. He was drafted 19th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft from the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. He is currently playing for the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League but made his NHL debut this past week with the Red Wings.
The rougher North American game has been to Kindl's liking as he can take and give a hit and has dropped the gloves a few times. Not only that but Kindl showed an offensive flair with 26 goals and 127 points in addition to his 346 career OHL penalty minutes in 176 OHL games. Jakub Kindl is another talented European player to add to the long list selected by the Detroit Red Wings in recent years.
Jakub Kindl has been featured within In The Game products but will make his professional rookie card debut this season in Upper Deck's mid and late season products which will be available at Canada Card World.
