The Bulldogs’ first-round selection, 20th overall, in the 2019 CHL Import Draft joins the organization from HC Litvinov in the Czech Extraliga where he posted 5 goals & 4 assists for 9 points across 26 games as an underage player.
Mysak, a native of Litvinov, CZE, has spent his entire life in hockey with the Litvinov club.
