Brett Postula, an 18-year old forward from Michigan, has agreed to a tender with the Knights for 2018-19. The ‘99 has spent the last several seasons with Meijer Hockey, a youth hockey organization that is lauded for producing junior hockey players, including another Knights tender Zak Currie and veteran forward Tyrone Bronte.
”No I haven’t had the chance to speak with Tyrone yet-he’s been pretty busy,” said a laughing Postula, during the Knights Robertson Cup Semifinals. “He was a great player here though and was a great teammate when he was here. Meijer is a great organization. Coach Sherry is a wonderful coach and it’s truly a wonderful place to play.”
This past season, Postula wracked up 23 goals and 20 assists playing AAA and Midget hockey for Meijer.
“I’m a go-hard type of guy,” said the 6-0, 170-pound forward. “I can go win battles on the walls and in the corners. I’m aggressive in front of the net and I can score.”
”Brett is a talented player who can fill a lot of roles throughout a lineup,” said Knights assistant GM Justin Schreiber. “He really came on strong toward the end of his midget season and caught the eyes of our staff.”
Postula was one of many following the action in this past weekend’s Robertson Cup Playoffs. The Knights were among the final four teams left in the playoffs before being eliminated by the eventual champion, the Shreveport Mudbugs. He believes he can be a part of the next step.
”I want to come in, work hard and win a Robertson Cup,” he said plainly.
Postula will get the opportunity when the Knights resume work following the NAHL Draft on June 5th with Main Camp from July 20th-22nd.
