Fantasy Summary

Priskie has skills and skating to succeed but there hasn’t been large improvements to his game statistically.


Click to Expand

July 2023 – Priskie signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Capitals as the team works to continue to bolster its depth and give the Hershey Bears a loaded roster to attempt to get back-to-back championships in the AHL. He will likely only be called up if a few injuries hit that Capitals on the back end. Pat Quinn


July 2022 – Priskie has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Buffalo Sabres. He continues his role as a fringe rearguard, and a top call-up option. Dave Hall 


April 2020 – Priskie made a very successful transition to pro hockey after starring in the NCAA circuit where he was team captain. As great as his rookie AHL season has been, the intelligent puck-mover is buried behind several quality offensive defensemen in Florida’s system and will have to do more, at both ends of the ice, to stand out and force the matter. Getting four points in five games with Springfield is a nice start, but he’s 24 now and his window is already starting to close. – Dobber


March 2020 – Priskie could be a fun fantasy option in the not-so-distant future, who could play a consistent role in Florida’s defensive depth. Keith Fries


February 2020 – Priskie has been traded from Carolina to Florida in the Vincent Trocheck trade.  Jokke Nevalainen


March 2019 – Priskie was suspended two games earlier in March for kicking a player, which is a blotch on his impressive resume this season. Currently he is up to 39 points in 34 games as he has exploded past his previous three seasons of 25, 26 and 26 points. Priskie is playing so well that if he does not sign with the Caps he will be highly sought after when he because a freeagent. Pat Quinn


January 2019 – Priskie has been nominated for the Hobey Baker award along with the likes of Adam Fox, Taro Hirose, Quinn Hughes, K’Andre Miller, and Josh Norris. He has a decent chance to win but with a field of 25 players, who knows. Pat Quinn


September 2018 – Priskie will head back to the Quinnipiac University for his fourth and final season where he will again serve as Captain. Hopefully he can pass the 26 point threshold as he really should be able to control play in every game. The biggest question is if the Capitals can sign him at the end of the year as they have tremendous depth on defense, and they have the top five locked up for at least two more seasons after this one. Pat Quinn


May 2018 – Priskie has been a good defenseman in the NCAA for Quinnipac, first being named to the ECAC hockey all-rookie team in 2016 and then being named to the ECAC hockey third team in 2017. Priskie has held similar point totals for three straight seasons in the NCAA with points of 26, 26, and 25, while playing slightly less games each season due to random injuries. He was named captain for the 2017-18 season and finished third in team scoring. For a sixth round pick Priskie has been impressive in his development and may have a future in the professional leagues. Pat Quinn
