Observations

February 2018 — In his second season with the UConn Huskies, Huska posted a 2.52 GAA and 0.914 save % through 25 games, placing him sixth in Hockey East goalies stats and pushing him into team MVP discussions.  Unfortunately for Huska his season was cut short in late January as he suffered an injured left wrist (catching hand) which has kept him out of game action.  Expect the 20 year-old to return to UConn in the fall of 2018.  Geoff Kent

 

December 2016 — As a USHL rookie, Huska finished the 2015/16 season as the league’s leading goaltender in both GAA (1.82) and save % (0.931).  This fall Adam’s career took another step forward joining the University of Connecticut Huskies.  As a freshman Huska has started 10 of the Huskies first 18 games and posted a 2.54 GAA and 0.926 save % in the very competitive Hockey East.  Huska is expected to represent Slovakia at the upcoming U20 world championships where he would be tested by the best young talent in the game. – Geoff Kent

 

December 2015 – The New York Rangers took the European netminder with their last pick in 2015th NHL Entry Draft. Huska plays for the Green Bay Gamblers in the USHL. He is a big, athletic goalie who is highly competitive. He tracks the puck very well, has a solid technique and movement, buts needs to work on his stickhandling. This year he has had a very good season with the Gamblers, starting 17 games and owning a 1.65 GAA with 0.942 SV%. He is by far the best goalie in the USHL this year. His performance earned him an invite from the Slovakian national team to participate in this year’s U20 WJC in Helsinki. Jozsef Kurtosi
