He was selected to play for the Czech Republic's 2012 World Junior Championship team. He scored two goals in six games, as his Czech team made its way to a fifth-place finish in Alberta. He also represented the Czech Republic at the 2011 Under-18 World Championship.

He played junior hockey in the Czech Republic with Trinec on both their junior and under-18 teams from 2007 until 2011, before traveling across the pond to play for Kitchener.
