  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Good rookie season delivers role as Black Ace

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/18/18) Cernak finished his first pro season with five goals, 18 points and 70 PIM in 71 games with the AHL Syracuse Crunch.

    Cernak is a crease clearer who skates well and his performance in Syracuse earned him a coveted Black Aces spot on the Bolts' playoff squad this postseason. Cernak is likely the closest of the Crunch to the NHL, but he remains about fifth on the team's depth chart at right D. And that means his debut may be a long way off.

    Lightning's Erik Cernak: Impressing team brass with potential

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/20/17) Cernak finished with 21 points (three goals) for the Erie Otters in 2016-17 and has impressed Stacy Roest, Lightning director of player development, reports the Tampa Times.

    Cernak has the potential to become a top-four defender in the NHL. "He's big strong, skates well," Roest said. "He plays simple, moves the puck. He's been a big part of their team so far. He doesn't get much power play time, but he's the first over the board on PK, and usually plays against the other team's top lines. He's a big boy, thick, strong, plays pretty physical. A good package."

    Kings' Erik Cernak: Struggles with injuries in first OHL season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/16) Cernak chipped in two assists to help lead OHL Erie to a 6-4 win over Saginaw on Thursday.

    Cernak was limited to just 41 games in his first OHL season due to various injuries. He put up just 15 points in those 41 contests, although part of that is due to the fact he plays for one of the deepest squads in all of junior hockey. Cernak will making his living as a big, strong, stay-at-home defender at the NHL level, but he has better hands than most give him credit for. The 2015 second-round pick has the tools to become one of the better defenders in the OHL next season.
