The 6′-5″ 185-pound Czech Republic native has had his troubles with consistency in the East Coast Hockey League with the Atlanta Gladiators appearing in 19 career games and posting a 5-10-1 record, 3.84 goals-against-average and .889 save percentage. Some would criticize his numbers in the Bruins developmental scheme but when he’s called upon to the next level of minor-pro hockey you can see a big difference when he dawns the Baby B’s black and gold jersey and competes harder with a better-structured team in front off him.

Last year the Boston Bruins third-round selection in 2015 appeared in eight games for Providence going unbeaten with a 4-0-1 record, aa 2.62 GAA, and .921 save%. With loaned St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington getting the start last nights 5-2 win against the Springfield Thunderbirds, Vladar looks to continue his streak at the AHL level and shoot down the doubters as he shows the Bruins Brass that he belongs in the crease no matter where he plays throughout the B’s organization.
