Observations:

 

March 2014 - Kubalik has played this season in the KHL. Although his contract is just for one year, his odds of returning to the NHL and making the Jets are slim. - Dobber

 

 

June 2013 - Columbus' 5th round selection in 2008 has signed to play with Lev Praha of the KHL for the the 2013-14 season after spending three seasons bouncing between Springfield and St. John's of the American Hockey League, as well as a few cups of coffee with the Blue Jackets club. In 12 games over the past three years with Columbus, Kubalik posted one goal and four points. The recent KHL signee commited for one year but keep tabs on him as his future in North America is a bit murky. Brendan Ross

 

March 2013 - After showing flashes of scoring potential, Kubalik has settled in as a third-line energy player capable of 15 goals at the NHL level. But don't expect more than that. - Dobber

 

March 2012 – Kubalik is a native of the Czech Republic but did import to the QMJHL ranks for the 2009-10 season. He definitely showed his scoring touch in the major juniors and has surprised the brass of the Blue Jackets with his grit and ability to score those “dirty” goals. He completed a successful rookie campaign in the AHL last season notching 53 points in 76 games for Springfield. The downfall in Kubalik’s game is his skating and physical strength. - Russ Bitely

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: D+

 

Kubalik is a scrappy scoring forward that will need to improve on his quickness in order to make the next step.
