Projection: No. 2 Playmaking Centre
Novak has excellent sense and feel for the game with an effortless approach to playing that can make it appear at times that it is laissez-faire. He can make plays in all situations and has poise to allow plays to develop. He has the ability to strike quickly when the opportunity is there. Very elusive with his skating and can change speed and position quickly. Being a consistent threat can make him a very valuable player.
