Yam Madar is a smart, skilled, heady playmaker that was the star of the U-20 European Championships this summer.  He showed off strong shooting, scoring, and playmaking skills at this event.  He will need to show that he can keep this up to perform well in high-end professional leagues, but if he can, he could swiftly move up draft boards in 2020.
