Observations

December 2019 – In his second season at Notre Dame, Stastney continues to push the pace from the backend.  His well balanced overall play is earning him a steady amount of ice time in the regular rotation. Seen as a dependable defender and transition passer, Stastney is starting to become more comfortable offensively.  He scored all of four points in 39 games last season and is already up to eight points through 17 games in 2019-20. Stastney’s play is getting noticed as he was named to the World Junior 2020 Team USA preliminary roster. Nicholas Kawka

March 2019 – Stastney had a bit of an underwhelming freshman campaign for the University of Notre Dame, only managing three assists in 36 games. Stastney plays a very disciplined game, only taking four penalties through those 36 games. He’s going to need another three years at Notre Dame before he’s ready for a professional contract, but the defensive side of his game translates well to the NHL. Matt Somma

October 2018 – Spencer Stastney has begun his freshman season with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Predators selected Stastney in the fifth round, 131st overall in 2018 after a strong season with the U.S. U-18 team. Stastney has gone pointless through his first two games with Notre Dame but was moved up to the second pairing in his second game. Stastney has some offensive upside but will likely need three or four years of college hockey before he is ready to make the transition to the pros. Matt Somma
