SASKATOON, SK– The Saskatoon Blades are pleased to announce they have signed prospect, Tomas Zizka, to a WHL Standard Player Agreement.
“Tomas is a very mobile puck-moving defenseman who we feel we will be a good long term Blade,” says president & general manager Colin Priestner. “He has exciting offensive upside on top of a very competitive nature.”
The Blades selected Zizka 37th overall in the 2022 CHL Import Draft on Friday, July 1st.
The 2005-born defenceman played out his 2021-22 season with the Lidingö Vikings J18. The 5-foot-10 140 pound skater played 31 games, chalking up 14 points (1G-13A), along with 16 penalty minutes.
Tomas is expected to attend his first Western Hockey League camp with the Blades this coming Fall and wear the pacman logo for the 2022-23 season.
The Saskatoon Blades would like to welcome Tomas and the Zizka Family into the organization, and look forward to continuing his development under the watchful eye of Brennan Sonne’s coaching staff.
Details on the 2022-23 training camp will be released at a later date.
