Filip Chlapík (born 3 June 1997) is a Czech professional ice hockey forward. He is currently playing for the Belleville Senators in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect to the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). Chlapík was selected 48th overall by the Senators in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Chlapík was drafted by the Charlottetown Islanders in the 1st round (11th overall) of the 2014 CHL Import Draft.[2] In his first season with Charlottetown he was recognized for his outstanding play when he was selected to take part in the 2015 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.[3] He was also named to the 2014–15 QMJHL All-Rookie Team after tying for league lead in both rookie goal scoring (33) and power play goals (10).[4]

Chlapík signed an entry level contract with the Ottawa Senators on 22 December 2016.[5] Chlapík made his professional debut with the Belleville Senators, the American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate of the Ottawa Senators in October 2017. Chlapík was an injury callup to Ottawa later in October and made his NHL debut on 26 October 2017 in a 5–4 win against the Philadelphia Flyers, during which he scored his first NHL point.[6]

Chlapík started the 2017–18 season with the Belleville Senators.[7] He was called up to the NHL on 25 October 2017[8] and played one game before being sent back to the AHL on 28 October 2017.[9] He was called up multiple times in December and January but was injured in a game against the Minnesota Wild[10] and was sent down to the AHL shortly after.[11] Chlapík was not called up again until 19 March 2018,[12] and he recorded his first NHL goal on 22 March 2018, in a game against the Edmonton Oilers.[13]

International play[edit]

Chlapík won silver medals with the Czech under-18 national team at both the 2014 IIHF World U18 Championships and 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.[14] He also competed at the 2015 IIHF World U18 Championships where the Czech national team was eliminated in the Quarterfinals.

Personal life[edit]

Chlapík is good friends with Daniel Sprong.[15] Sprong was chosen just two picks ahead of Chlapík by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

His brother Adam Chlapík is also a hockey player.
