Observations:

 

September 2014 - Matej Stransky has been assigned to the Texas Stars of the AHL. Stransky should be highly motivated to try and regain some of the lost luster from his prospect star following his disappointing rookie season in Cedar Park. Rex Doty 

 

September 2014 - Stransky is among the Stars prospects who has received an invitation to their 2014-15 NHL training camp. There is no chance of Matej earning a spot but it will be a good learning experience before rejoining the AHL Texas Stars. Stransky will be looking to improve upon his rookie AHL numbers which seen him post just 23 points in 65 games and a team worst minus-13.

 

April 2013- Stransky posted another strong season with the WHL's Saskatoon Blades. He followed up his 81 point sophomore season with 85 points this season in 72 games, tied for the team lead. Matej also finished a plus-32 and added 88 PIM to the point total. It looks like the time has come for him to take the next step and join Dallas' AHL affiliate- Rex Doty

 

July, 2012 - Is having a strong development camp. Interesting observations on him here. "I was told by some people with the team that they believe Matej Stransky could be the next superstar for the team. A very large right winger, Stransky possesses Jagr-like ability at protecting the puck and has the offensive ability to go along with it. He needs to work on his release, however, or he'll never become the big scorer at the NHL level that some are expecting from him in the future." - Dobber

 

April 2012 – This big Czech winger is starting to look like a late round steal. Stransky plays with a lot of energy and is starting to show an impressive array of offensive skills. On the season he put up 81 points in 71 games. That is a 55 point improvement from the 26 points he registered in his rookie year. Look for Stransky to be one of the WHL’s most dominant forwards next year.

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

Size and underrated skill. Needs to work on skating and using his big frame to maximize his potential. Must shoot more.
