Nov 24: After playing just a single game with BK Mlada Boleslav, Teply’s loan has been changed to HC Stadion Litomerice.
Sep 5: Chicago has opted to loan two more prospects overseas as they announced that they’ve loaned center Philipp Kurashev to HC Lugano of the Swiss NLA and winger Michal Teply to BK Mlada Boleslav of the Czech Extraliga. Both players will likely return when NHL training camps for 2020-21 get underway.
Kurashev played his first full professional season in 2019-20, suiting up in 36 games with AHL Rockford, collecting seven goals and 12 assists in 36 games. However, he was not recalled by the Blackhawks at any point during the season. The 20-year-old was a fourth-round pick (120th overall) in 2018 and has two years remaining on his contract.
As for Teply, the 19-year-old opted to leave the Czech Republic to play junior hockey with the Winnipeg Ice of the WHL this season. The decision proved to be a smart one as he had 29 goals and 34 assists in 53 games which earned himself an entry-level contract back in April. Teply was a fourth-round pick of Chicago (105th overall) back in 2019. He’s still eligible to play in the WHL this season but Teply could also suit up for Rockford whenever their 2020-21 season kicks off.
