2011 Round 5 - Penguins draft C Dominik Uher

The Pens shifted their focus to offense with their fifth round selection of center Dominik Uher.

Dominik played in the U18 (and U20) Czech leagues before coming over to play in Canada. He plays for the Spokane Chiefs in the WHL (the same league that first round pick Joe Morrow plays in).

Dominik started slowly as a 16-17 year old in juniors, but started to score a bit more last season, with 21 goals and 60 points in 65 games.

He'll have another year or two to improve in the WHL.
