Nov 2020 – He’s been loaned to HC Kosice during the delayed season start. – Joel Henderson

Jan 2020 – Martin Pospisil has not played a game since October 19th when he fought Colby Cave and was knocked unconscious. It’s almost been three months of missing action which is not a good sign for the young pro. Recently, he has been considered Day-to-Day by Stockton. – Joel Henderson

April 2019 – Martin Pospisil signed his ELC. He was originally committed to St. Lawrence University but there were some rumoured complications. The Calgary Flames elected to sign him and he will most likely report to Stockton in the fall. He is the type of player who could move up and down the lineup on any given night or just get his feet wet on the 4th line. He tore apart the USHL with highly touted 2019 draft-eligible forward Bobby Brink. – Joel Henderson

Feb 2019 – Pospisil will serve a 12-game suspension for a combination of spearing, pushing an official, and what appears to be trying to climb over the glass to confront a fan who threw garbage at him. He is a passionate person by all indication and isn’t afraid to wear his emotions on his sleeve. He continues to showcase this. This could be a huge asset or his biggest detriment moving forward. – Joel Henderson

Nov 2018 – Martin Pospisil had one of the most unique draft eligible seasons for a prospect. He led the USHL in PIM with 253 in 49 games in 2017-18. You read that right. It absolutely has to be the first thing you speak of when you talk about this prospect. This affects how you evaluate his offensive production because often he left games with significant time remaining, Instead of jumping to St. Lawrence in the NCAA, he stuck with Sioux City and has begun the season with 23 points in 12 games.

He is a smooth skater and can often be found gliding in the O-zone or battling around the boards. His success comes from smart, strong passes, puck retrieval/board battles, and taking the puck strong to the net. He likes to get elevated pucks off quick with a decent wrist shot but isn’t afraid to stick handle in tight to jam in a rebound off the pads. He will need to continue to work on his skating and his acceleration to have success at the pro level but he has plenty of time to develop in the NCAA. The way he uses his size and physicality allows him to currently dominate at the USHL level and his puck skills/skating will continue to develop. He won’t put up the crazy PIM numbers either but this is the type of fantasy prospect you hope can crack an NHL lineup down the road. Sleeper prospect. – Joel Henderson
