This is the first in a series looking at some of the top prospects for the Dallas Stars. First up is right wing Matej Stransky, who led the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League in scoring this past season.

Stransky, a sixth round pick (165th overall) in 2011, led the Blades in goals (39), assists (42) and points (81) in 70 games played. Those offensive numbers were more than triple what he put up the previous season – his first in North America – when he had 26 points (14 goals, 12 assists) in 71 games for Saskatoon.

“Of all the players in our organization, he took the biggest step in improvement this year,” said Les Jackson, Dallas Stars Director of Player Personnel. “He really had a strong season in the Western League.”

Stransky, an 18-year-old from the Czech Republic, finished 15th in the WHL in goal scoring and tied for 19th in points. His 14 power play goals, which led his team, were tied for 15th in the league.

The 6-3, 201 pound forward, who has a good skill set, had two points (one goal, one assist) in four playoff games as Saskatoon was swept out of the first round of the playoffs.

The Stars signed Stransky to a three-year entry-level contract in early April. The skilled forward, who is a right shot, is expected to play in the WHL again next season.

“He’s a big kid with really good hands and good instincts. We need to work on a few things with him developmentally, but that’s pretty normal for a kid his age,” said Jackson. “He’s in a good place and he’s made some good strides. He’s an impressive player.”

The Dallas Stars have signed prospect Matej Stransky, a sixth round pick in 2011, to an entry-level contract. Stransky had a nice season in the WHL, leading his team with 81 points (39 goals, 42 assists) in 70 games.

Here's the release from the Stars.
The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has signed forward Matej (Mah-tay) Stransky to a three-year entry-level contract. Stransky, 18, was Dallas' sixth-round selection (No. 165 overall) in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

"We are excited to announce the signing of Matej," Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk said. "His development with Saskatoon over the last two seasons is an encouraging sign of a player who we think has a successful future with the Stars organization."

The 6-foot-3, 201-pound right wing from Ostrava, Czech Republic spent the last two seasons with the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League (WHL). During the 2011-12 campaign, Stransky led Saskatoon in goals (39), assists (42), points (81) and power play goals (14). In 141 career games with the Blades, Stransky has posted 107 points (53 goals, 54 assists) with a +19 rating.

DALLAS – It’s break time in college hockey and that may be the only way to keep Dallas Stars prospect Austin Smith off the score sheet right now. Smith, a Dallas native and senior at Colgate University, leads the nation with 18 goals and is tied for second with 28 points in 17 games played.

It’s been a big bounce back season for both Smith and the Colgate Raiders, who had a down season in 2010-11. But tough times can make you stronger, and that’s been the case for Smith and Colgate.

“It’s a ginormous turnaround from last year,” said Smith, who attended Monday night’s Dallas Stars-Anaheim Ducks game at American Airlines Center. “It was a tough season. We had a lot of adversity. I was coming off hip surgeries and I learned a lot.”

Smith, 23, felt he might have rushed back from hip surgeries last season, and it took a toll. He got off to a slow start and the team struggled as well. Smith ended the season with 31 points (10 goals, 21 assists) in 41 games and the Raiders finished with an 11-28-3 season.

“At the end of the day, I learned how to play through it, which is important,” said Smith. “We had a good stretch run at the end of last year and learned a lot. I had a lot of adversity, which will help me later in my career. It’s helped me so far this year.”

Smith, a speedy, skilled forward, has registered points in 16 of 17 games this season and Colgate, currently 11-4-2 on the season, is ranked 11th nationally in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll and 12th by USCHO.com.

“I’ve been more determined every day, shooting the puck more and playing with a lot more confidence,” said Smith. “I’m finding a way to score goals and helping my team win, which is the ultimate goal. It’s been fun and hopefully we’ll make it into the tournament this year.”

While this is his final season of college hockey, Smith can’t resist thinking what is ahead next season. The fifth round pick (128th overall) in 2007 was the first player born and raised in the Dallas area to be selected in the NHL draft, and next season he’ll embark on his professional career with the Dallas Stars organization.

“It’s hard not to think about it, but I try to stay in the moment,” he said. “I try to stay focused, but obviously I am excited being a Texas kid coming back here, whether it is starting in Austin (with the Texas Stars) or making it here on the big stage at some point. I’m excited. I’ll have a good opportunity down there to work hard and eventually work my way up. The opportunity is going to be there. I just have to work hard and make the most of it.”
