Today’s countdown is brought to you by Dallas Star and sometimes Texas Star, #81, Tomas Vincour. The Czech native was a 5th round draft pick in 2009 with high hopes after glowing scouting reports. Those in attendance at Texas Stars games in 2010 and much of 2011 saw what I consider to be the best of Vincour.
Vincour (wearing #17 in Cedar Park), appeared in 47 games for the Dallas Stars this season, collecting five goals, seven assists and six penalty minutes during the 2011-12 campaign. Given those types of stats, Tomas is going to need to ratchet up his defense to earn a permanent spot in the big D it would seem.
We’ll see what the ’12-13 season has in store for Tomas but I suspect we won’t be seeing a whole lot of him in the CPC. Enjoy watching him while you can, I suspect the AHL conditioning really paid off as his game got consistently better throughout the season.
