Listed by Elite Prospects at 5'11, 179 lbs, just spent his age 18 year playing HS hockey where he had 44 points in 25 games. Committed to Boston College but could spend a year with Dubuque (USHL) or go to Quebec whom hold his QMJHL rights.

 

Rankings: Central Scouting 109 (NA Skaters), Future Considerations 92, Hockey Prospect + Pronman + Button (not ranked)

 

Snippet from Future Considerations:

 

Dudek is a great skater with a superb hockey IQ and a knack for playmaking. Good acceleration and top speed with good balance and jump in his step. He has a solid frame and strength that he uses effectively along the boards. He attacks the puck with energy and plays bigger than he is. His biggest weakness is his lack of physicality. He doesn’t appear to like when the game takes a physical turn, and therefore plays primarily on the perimeter. That said, he does win a fair amount of puck battles in open ice throughout the neutral zone. He possesses soft hands and it shows when he works the cycle. He won’t drive toward the net very often, but he is very good at setting up the cycle and creating quick plays. Good vision and smart thinker. Makes quick, easy plays; nothing overly fancy, but it works when he’s winning battles along the boards. Defensively, he has a decent presence down the middle as the line’s center, but like most high school prospects, he did not command defensive presence.

To avoid being a complete pessimist today I'll say I "like" the pick. In all honesty can't expect much out of a 6th round pick. Would've rather taken Spencer Watson and his 68 points in 65 OHL games in his age 17 season but at least Dudek seems to have some upside unlike some of the other picks.

This is a good one for a 6th rounder, I've been reading good things about him.

That is too painful to watch, thank you for the video though. Some maybe stronger than I.

I hear you. It's a student broadcast from the home team so it's a little rough... I'm going through and making some highlights... he scores the first two goals of the game:
