Juraj Slafkovsky was hit by a rather intense wave of popularity when he was named first overall pick by the Montreal Canadiens in 2022.

While the city is already buzzing with Canadiens fans, this was the first time in 40 years that the CH had the chance to select first at a draft.

However, Juraj is even more popular in Slovakia, where he has become the country's new icon. He's the first player to be named at the very top of the draft in their history.

Let's just say that the companies are all trying to get the CH's number 20 as a spokesperson or for publicity, which has finally happened. Indeed, Slaf appeared in a commercial and here's the video, which is going viral. He looks good!
