Erik Cernak Bio

Cernak, a defenseman from Kosice, Slovakia, attracted the attention of NHL scouts in his first full pro season with his hometown team in the country's top pro league. The Los Angeles Kings selected him in the second round (No. 43) of the 2015 NHL Draft.

After being drafted, Cernak opted to come to North America, playing two seasons with Erie of the Ontario Hockey League. But before his second season in Erie ended, he was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Feb. 26, 2017.
