Where is he playing right now and has he been drafted?
He's pretty awful, can't see him playing Pro in North America ever, may have to go back to Slovenia to be honest.
He hasn't been drafted. He doesn't possess a fraction of his brother's talent.
Gasper was an ok 3rd/4th liner in the USHL for the Des Moines Bucs this season. I don't really see too much NHL potential with him.
Same name, way less talent.
Sounds like a combination of Anze Kopitar and Casper the Friendly Ghost
lmfao. thats good.
sounds like Marcel Hossa
At least Marcel Hossa has talent and is a pretty good KHLer.
Gaspar is just brutal.
And now a word from someone who has seen him play!
Kid has a VERY good two way game. He's a guy who gives 110% on every shift. He has a lot of natural skill with the puck, but focuses a lot more on his all-around game. He absolutely dominated multiple games this season. Scored a goal from a damn near impossible angle at even strength and then the shootout winner, while shutting down Fargo top line all game in my most memorable performance from him this season, on a bad Des Moines team. He probably won't make the NHL, but ignore people like those in this thread who have no idea in which cities the USHL even has teams. He's actually a very fun kid to watch.
The caliber of hockey in Slovenia will probably allow him to make a living, playing hockey.
I don't think he goes back to Slovenia, even if to play hockey. The whole Kopitar family is apparently firmly rooted in the US now.
Not anymore. They all joined Anze in LA (Gaspar played for the LA Jr Kings) but Anze's dad took the head coaching gig of the Slovenian National Team so their parents are back in Slovenia. He'll have to go somewhere after the USHL since he doesn't have any NCAA eligibility.
I don't think they make that much.
Not enough to live on at least. I don't understand how he has none of Anzes talent. Usually you have some of your families talent.
No eligibility and no ability.
