The Good: Salak has an unorthodox style. He has a highly aggressive nature in net which often forces him to make the theatrical save with the extraordinary quickness and athleticism to do so. His technique and butterfly is good, he is athletic and have good movement. He can sometimes make plenty of gamesavers and keep his team in a game. He has good size for the goaltending position, and reacts well to pressure situations. He can play a heavy workload, but isn’t getting the chance with Rockford in the AHL right now. He does have upside and could eventually become a reliable netminder.

The Bad: Salak is getting outplayed by Carter Hutton with the Icehogs.  He needs to adjust to North American shooters’ tendencies, as well as fight through heavy traffic in front of him to see the puck.
