October 2017 – Kostalek was one of the final cuts at Jets training camp this season and was re-assigned to the AHL in late September. The 22-year-old has yet to suit up for the Moose this year and will wait his turn after playing in a career-high 60 games with the team last season. – Jamie Zadow

August 2017 – Kostalek wrapped up his second season in the AHL with much of the same from his rookie campaign, appearing in 60 games and finishing with two goals and seven points. The Czech defender has yet to find much of a scoring prowess with the Manitoba Moose and it would appear that his game has transitioned to more of a defensive shutdown role. Kostalek will enter the final year of his entry-level contract in 2017-18 where he is expected to start the season once again with the Moose. Jamie Zadow

 

October 2016 – The Jets sent Jan Kostalek to the Manitoba Moose of the AHL to start the season. David Dickenson

 

September 2016 – The 6-1 Czech defender has had a bit of a slow start to his pro career after looking so strong with the Rimouski Oceanic back in 2014-15. He did however manage to put up nine points in 52 games with the Manitoba Moose last year, but posted a plus/minus of -12 in doing so. He still has a long way to go to make an impact with the Jets organization. David Dickenson</
