Observations:

October 2017 – Stransky signed a two-year deal in the KHL over the Summer. Somewhat of a curious move by Stransky, as he appeared to be progressing nicely in the AHL. He’s now moving into his mid-20’s, so a move to Russia is not promising. Stransky may find something in the KHL that will motivate him to make it to the NHL. Not worth the risk in fantasy formats at this point. Matt Kowalski

February 2017 – Stransky has enjoyed a productive season for the Texas Stars in the AHL. He continues to display his ability to score goals. This is likely his best season as a pro, and it's coming at the perfect time. The Dallas club has been struggling this season, and with possible trades looming, Stransky could find himself in the NHL. I would expect Dallas to see what he can do in a third or fourth line role before the season is over. -Matt Kowalski

 

August 2016 – The Stars resigned Stransky to a one-year contract in July, and with the Stars a little light on the wing, there might be an outside chance he cracks the roster. The red flag on Stransky has always been his skating, but he did seem to improve as the season went on last year. Like Brett Ritchie, Stransky fits the power-forward mold, yet Ritchie brings a much higher pedigree. Ritchie is certainly higher on the pecking order, but if injuries occur Stransky could find himself with the Dallas Stars. –Matt Kowalski<
