RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

There was no outlook written for Martin Gernat.

Gernat turned pro last season and delivered four goals and 17 assists in 57 games for Oklahoma City of the AHL last season. The big Slovak (6-foot-5) will be a beast once he fills out and has the kind of high-level hockey smarts that will make him a fave of his NHL coach. He will begin year two in OKC as well and continue his development there, but he'll rocket onto our prospect radar if he can double his production this season.

Edmonton Oilers Prospects: #4 Martin Gernat

The Edmonton Oilers’ cupboard is pretty bare for high-end forward prospects, but things are getting mighty crowded on the back end.

As Jon Willis intimated yesterday, Jujhar Khaira is the top-rated forward in the Oilers’ system at #5 overall in our Cult of Hockey prospects rankings. With no crackerjack young goalies in the mix, it will come as no surprise to readers that the top four are all blueliners. That depth on D extends to six of the top nine eight hopefuls in the system, of whom only one, Martin Marincin, is as old as 21.

Things are about to get real in Oklahoma City, where a number of these prospects will be converging in the near future. This upcoming season the rearguard-rich draft of 2011 will stock the system with three North American rookie pros including our #4 ranked prospect, Martin Gernat, along with #9 David Musil and #? Oscar Klefbom. (A fourth 2011 draftee, #7 Dillon Simpson, remains in university for his senior year but will enter the mix in 2014.)

The Barons’ cluster already includes four young defenders with just one full year of pro hockey under their belts in Marincin, Brandon Davidson, Taylor Fedun and Brad Hunt. Then there’s Philip Larsen, who at 23 may be hard-pressed to make the big club. Barring a trade, it seems unlikely there be ice time enough for all. Will one of the newcomers like Musil or Gernat be the odd man out in OKC and have to take flight with the ECHL’s Bakersfield Condors?

For sure, Gernat has the wingspan of a condor. His size and reach are major plusses, even as it will likely take him a while yet to grow into his gangly frame. At 6’5 he doesn’t fit the mould of an offensive defenceman, but that is Gernat’s primary strength. By eye he’s a creative player with an excellent first pass, good wheels, and strong powerplay skills. On the defensive side of the puck, he’s a work in progress who has made solid strides over the past two years, but will still need plenty of refinement before he’s close to being NHL-ready.

Gernat sees his own game in a similar light. Asked about the strengths of his game in a Cult of Hockey interview this past January, the likable youngster with the ready smile responded: “I prefer the offensive play, to help out on the powerplay, to make good passes from the defensive zone under pressure, and be a leader on defence too.” In the follow-up question, he was matter of fact about his weaknesses: “I need to put some muscle on my body first, and then I think I need to improve in defensive zone.”

Edmonton fans have had the opportunity to see Gernat up close and personal for much of the past two years. He was selected by the Oil Kings in the CHL Import Draft days after the Oilers picked him in June, 2011. He made an immediate great impression with a superb rookie season, leading the Oil Kings in plus/minus and in defence scoring as the club surged to first overall followed by the WHL title and a berth in the Memorial Cup.

2012-13 was a tougher season for the towering defender, with a number of peaks and valleys. He was sidelined with shoulder surgery that kept him out until mid-January, forced him to miss the World Juniors, and limited him to just 23 regular season games. He rebounded with a solid playoff run that was enough to convince the voters here at the Cult of Hockey that Marty should retain his #4 ranking of a year ago.

During that Oil Kings playoff run, Gernat was signed an entry-level contract by the Oilers, then spent some time on the practice roster in Oklahoma City’s own playoff run. Alas, after his return home to Slovakia, Gernat received the devastating news of the accidental death of his close friend Kristians Pelss.

Over the past two years including playoffs and Memorial Cup, Gernat played 129 games for the Oil Kings, posting impressive offensive numbers of 26-73-99 and a spectacular +70. That stat is a chicken-and-egg thing involving a strong player on a strong team, but there is little question that he satisfied the “strong player” part of the equation and was a key contributor to Edmonton’s success. Marty excelled at junior hockey and is ready for the next challenge.

Expectations for 2013-14: Anticipate early questions about whether he belongs in Oklahoma City, Bakersfield, or perhaps even back in Edmonton for an overage year with the Oil Kings. Key development will be for Gernat to avoid the numbers game sufficiently to get regular playing time.

  • Slovak hopes - 2017 WM - International Ice Hockey Federation IIHF

    martin gernat hockey future bets

    Official Main Sponsor

    Slovaks still hopeful Slovaks still hopeful Young prospects look to the future

    It’s been a tough tournament for Slovakia. Seeded fourth in Cologne, and expected to push for at least a quarter-final place, the team has come out on the wrong side of several tight verdicts.

    Now, chances of progress to the knock-out stage are dependant on back-to-back wins over Sweden and the USA, plus a favourable series of results elsewhere. It’s a long shot, but the mood in the Slovak camp is still buoyant.

    This year’s roster has a very new look to it. Unlike previous seasons, Slovakia has gone without any of its NHL stars and called up nine players who never previously played in a World Championship. It’s a time of transition for the national team, and results in Cologne need to be viewed through that prism.

    Certainly, team captain Vladimir Dravecky is in no doubt that the future is going to be brighter – and soon.

    “Even though we’ve lost games here, we’ve not been playing all that badly,” he said. “The problem is just that we’re not scoring goals. We’ve had good opportunities in every game, even when we lost 6-0 to Russia, but we need to be stronger around their net. We need more plays to the net, more shots from our D-men, and I think we will have better results.

    “We can’t overlook that we have nine players at their first World Championship. It’s really good experience for them. Because we have a lot of young guys, I think it’s looking pretty good for the next couple of years. A tournament like this is a big school for a few of our emerging players.”

    The 31-year-old, who plays his hockey in Trinec, Czech Republic, made his own World Championship debut here in Cologne back in 2010. This year, on his return to the LANXESS Arena, he’s been given a leadership role – and that’s something he’s relishing as he helps to develop his country’s new talent.

    “I’m really happy that they gave me the ‘C’,” he said. “I feel like I have a real responsibility for the team, for the guys. We’re all trying to do our best, we still have two games to play and of course we want to show what we can do in those.”

    Martin Gernat, a 24-year-old defenceman who helped Sparta Prague to the final of this year’s Champions Hockey League, is one of the World Championship rookies. A 2011 draft pick for the Oilers, he returned to Europe last summer after five seasons in North America that brought a WHL title and 138 AHL appearances. Now he’s closer to home, Gernat is back on the national team’s radar after earlier appearances at u18 and u20 championships.

    “I kind of knew what it would be like here after playing World Juniors, but even though our team is not doing really well, this is still a good new experience for me,” he said. “Hopefully we can break this run and start winning those tough games.”

    Three of Slovakia’s five games have gone to overtime – a victory over Italy and losses to Germany and Denmark. That reinforces the feeling that the team isn’t far away from chalking up wins. Gernat feels that the key thing is gaining experience and overcoming nerves, especially in the opposition zone.

    “You could see in the game against Russia, we had so many chances in that second period but we’re not taking our time,” he said. “Our players aren’t ready to wait that extra second, take a deep breath and create a good chance for a goal. We’re always trying to score right away and that’s been our biggest problem.”

    Martin Gernat, Hockey Prospects - DobberProspects

    Martin Gernat

    Martin Gernat, D

    Hometown: Kosice, Slovakia

    Drafted: 2010 by Edmonton, 122 nd overall

    March 2016 - Gernat was traded to Anaheim (along with a fourth-rounder) for Patrick Maroon. Worst possible spot for Gernat in terms of fantasy value as Anaheim is exceedingly deep when it comes to puck-moving defensemen prospects. - Dobber

    September 2015 - Gernat finds himself on the outside looking in for the first two Oilers pre-season games (a aplit squad against the rival Flames). The Oilers are dressing 14 different defensemen between both games so it is a bit of a surprise to find Gernat's name nowehre to be found. After a sub-par sophomore AHL season, Gernat will have to show the brass he can play at a higher level to crack Bakersfield this season. He could be bounced back and forth between Norfolk and Bakersfield all season long. He remains a long shot to make it as a NHL regular. Tyler Thomson

    May 2015 - Gernat won’t turn any heads with his calm demeanor and safe defensive game to be sure. The 23-year-old has regressed offensively after his second season in the AHL but that’s not to say his game has suffered. He rarely gets caught out of position and often makes his partner look a lot better. Fantasy wise it could be a boom or bust year for Gernat as there isn’t much to offer other than a potential peripheral category player. Gernat risks walking the line of losing his prospect status in another year or two but this campaign could be his breakout one. It is very difficult for young defensemen to breakthrough at a young age, not to mention European bred defensemen who take a little more time adjusting to North American ice. Even Adam Larsson and Victor Hedman had steep learning curves and Gernat is not the highly regarded stud that the latter two were considered. Gernat will show this season whether or not he is worth a fantasy flier in your dynasty league. Tyler Thomson

    February 2015 - In his second season with Oklahoma City, Martin Gernat appears to still be adjusting to the professional game. The lanky defender has been a healthy scratch at times but plays a very responsible game. His production hasn't increased in any significant way with no goals and six points in 37 appearances. After a season with 21 points in 57 contests it comes as a mild disappointment but is hardly out of the ordinary for a young defenceman in the AHL. Gernat will continue to hone his craft with the Barons this season and a long playoff run for the first place club could prove to be a huge development boon for Gernat and the rest of the Oilers hopeful. Tyler Thomson

    September 2013 - After shortened 2012-13 WHL season due to shoulder injury, Martin Gernat came back and performed well for the Edmonton Oil Kings tallying three goals and 13 points in 23 regular season games before tacking on an impressive six goals and 17 points in 22 playoff games. Over his WHL career, Gernat has shown to be a defensive stud, finishing with gaudy plus-minus ratings. Gernat is a stabilizing presence on the blue line and has shown promise as a steady two-way defenseman. At 6-foot-5, Gernat's reach and physical strength provide an advantage to his astute defensive game. Gernat will be entering his first professional season with Oklahoma and if he can impress, he could earn a roster spot with the Oilers sooner than later. Brendan Ross

    April 2012 - Gernat was one of the most surprising rookies in the WHL this season. He seemingly came out of nowhere to put up 55 points in only 60 games. He also represented Slovakia in the WJC and had two points in six games. He was matched up against the best young talented in the world and faired pretty good, leading his team to a sixth place finish. He has also been solid for the Edmonton Oil Kings. He is big reason why they have one of the best defenses in the west. He could get a lot of exposure and experience if his team can continue their torrid playoff run. - Zenon Herasymiuk

    December 2011 – History, it seems, is repeating itself. One year after fellow Slovak and former teammate Martin Marincin netted 56 points as a rookie in the WHL, 6’6 Martin Gernat is well on his way to passing those numbers. Or, was. That was until Edmonton Oil Kings head coach Derek Laxdal reminded Gernat that his title is defenseman, not carry-the-puck-and-turn-it-over-man. Now reigning in his dangerous sorties up ice, the tall, talented Gernat is beginning to realize the potential his long limbs have in both zones. Matthew Bugg

    As long as he's in the Anaheim organization, he'll never become a puck-mover at the NHL level because there are too many superior options for the Ducks.
