April 2013- Postma's strong play in the AHL managed to earn him a spot in the shortened NHL season. Most of his time has been spent on the third pairing with either Grant Clitsome or Mark Stuart. He had a strong first half (posting five points in eight games) but has since lost most of his PP opportunity and has been scratched for the majority of March. This is all part of the growing pains when first breaking into the league, so it should be a matter of time before the PP quarterback sees another shot at more ice time. Kevin Won
July 2012 – Postma has resigned with Winnipeg. He will compete in camp with veterans Derek Meech, Grant Clitsome (Dobber favorite) and Brett Festerling for regular and depth duties. Give Postma the advantage as he has good upside to produce and Winnipeg will need to score to keep pace with Washington, Tampa and Carolina this season. Postma has scored 40 goals in 3 season in the AHL, only Dustin Byfuglien had more than 6 goals on the Jets back end last season. Jason Banks
April 2012 – Postma is an offensive defenseman. In his final season of junior he posted 84 points in 70 games. He has made significant improvement in his play away from the puck and was called up for three NHL games in 2011-2012. Needs to continue to add bulk and aggression to establish an NHL career. After being a late cut from training camp in 2011, Postma was named as a first team All-Star in the AHL.
Fantasy Outlook: C+
Postma will compete for a NHL job in 2012 preseason. His skating and offensive ability are NHL level already. A future NHL depth defenseman with fantasy value.
Paul Postma scores the first goal at the MTS Centre for the Jets from the point.
