RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

It's nice to see Kostka earn a deal with the Hawks, but don't expect huge things from this smooth-skating, yet under-sized defender. His 2012-13 with the Leafs was a lovely story, but he's no more than a six/seven defender, particularly on a deep squad like the defending Cup champs.

2012-13

Kostka is a 27-year-old veteran AHL defender who'll help the Marlies develop their young blueliners, but never see the wide seats of an NHL charter. Career minor leaguers are still good guys, though

2009-10

Despite being a non-drafted rookie, Kostka ended up having one of the biggest presences in Portland last season. He played in 80 games for the Sabres' affiliate team and was second on the team's defense in scoring with 4 goals and 26 assists. Known for his usually high plus/minus ratings, Kostka also led the team's defense with plus-8. Don't be shocked if this surprise prospect sees some time in the NHL this season as a depth player.

2008-09

Kostka led all NCAA defensemen in power-play goals last season. His defensive skills need more polish and he will likely spend 2008-09 in the AHL.
