The latest in a series of updates on some of the top prospects of the Dallas Stars looks at right wing Matej Stransky, who will turn pro this coming season.
Stransky, Dallas’ sixth round pick (165th overall) in 2011, is coming off a solid final season of junior hockey with the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League. He tallied 85 points (40 goals, 45 assists) in 72 games, ranking 12th in the WHL in goal scoring and 15th in points.
Stransky’s numbers were impressive, considering he got off to a slow start. It was a start that mirrored that of the team. But both Stransky and the Blades picked up the pace as the season moved along and both had very good regular seasons.
“The start was pretty tough because we traded for some players and the whole team was kind of new. Then we got on a streak and that kind of helped us a lot,” said Stransky. “I had pretty much the same number of points as the year before. The coaches wanted me to score some goals and I did that. I was pretty happy about the season.”
