Brett Postula Signs Tender with Knights

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.

Knights Sign Tender Zak Currie

The Knights have signed their first tender this season in forward Zak Currie from Meijer AAA hockey. Currie is a 1999 birth year from Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 27 games this year, the right-handed shot has scored 20 goals and recorded 13 assists for Meijer AAA 18U.

“Zak is an electric, skilled forward capable of putting up points in bunches as made evident by his stats this year,” said Knights assistant GM, Justin Schreiber. “He has had a great start to the year and we are excited to add a player of his caliber to the organization.”

“I picked the Knights because I like the staff and I think the organization is a good fit for my style of play,” said Currie. “I play a fast and skilled game. As far as the rest of this season, I just want to continue to improve areas of my game and continue to contribute to my team’s success.”
