The professional scout with the EA Sports NHL team took kindly to rating Jakub Voracek.
The top 10 right wingers for the first roster of NHL 16 were released today.

Voracek comes in at #4 on the list with a 90 overall.
The only right wingers above him are Vladimir Tarasenko (91), former cover boy Patrick Kane (92), and Corey Perry (92) which you can’t really argue with in my humble opinion.
Jakub Voracek is ranked better than some big names such as Rick Nash (89), new Penguin Phil Kessel (89), and Marian Hossa (90).
Rounding out the top 10 sits Blake Wheeler (89), Kyle Okposo (88), and Jiri Hudler (88).
Steve Mason couldn’t crack the top 10 goalies despite the third best SV% (.928) and 7th best GAA (2.25) last season.
As you might have guessed, there were no Flyers with the top 10 defensemen.
Left wingers are announced tomorrow and centers on Tuesday.
