Dry breakdown: Filip Mesar admits to being physically tired

Dry breakdown: Filip Mesar admits to being physically tired

Filip Mesar is currently continuing his development with the Kitchener Rangers in the OHL. But it goes without saying that the past few months have not been easy for the Montreal Canadiens hopeful.

The draft, rookie camp, CH training camp, Rocket training camp, a trade to Kitchener, the World Youth Hockey Championship…

No, Filip Mesar hasn’t had much time to rest lately. And the thing is, he’s starting to show up and affect him on the track.

The Slovakian grabbed an assist in Sunday afternoon’s win after being sidelined in the previous five matches. He hasn’t scored and has three assists in eight games since he returned to Kitchener, OHL.

The main interested party is also aware of this since he told Marco D’Amico (Montreal Hockey Now) that he was beginning to be physically tired.

Which, given the circumstances, is quite normal.

We remember that he started his season strong with the Kitchener Rangers after being cut by the Canadiens and the Laval Rocket, having added eight points in his first four games as a junior.

The Rangers had a bad start to the year, but the addition of the Slovak to the squad helped them get back on track. He performed as expected at the start of the season (before going to the Junior World Championship), but things are different now.

Filip Mesar just turned 19 years old. However, it is not because he is so young that he cannot feel the effects of fatigue or that he never gets tired. I said it before, but the last few months have been exhausting both mentally and physically…

And seeing him say out loud that he’s tired is understandable. The problem is that the Rangers are in the middle of their season and need the services of the Slovak if they want to advance in the playoffs.

The young man will have to find a way to manage his energy at the end of the schedule in the OHL because in reality, he should not burn out either. Otherwise, his development will be affected…

As well as your physical and mental health. And you never want to see that kind of thing happen to a 19-year-old athlete.

In Europe, Mesar was not used to playing so many games. At a professional level, the highest total of games he had played in a single season before this year stands at 37…

One way or another, it’s part of your learning.

A lot of
