Mise à jour alignement : Les #Sens rappellent Filip Chlapik de Belleville (LAH).
The 2015 48th overall pick had 91 points in 57 games in his final year in the QMJHL before transitioning to the AHL this season. For many prospects, the first year in professional hockey can be tough but Chlapik has faired well so far. The Czech Republic native has six goals and nine assists (15 points) in 27 games including three goals in his last five outings.
