Yan Stastny (born September 30, 1982) is an American-Canadian born professional ice hockey centre currently playing for the Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga. Yan comes from a notable hockey family, and is the son of Hockey Hall of Famer Peter Šťastný (one of the first star Eastern Bloc players to defect to the West). His uncles Anton and Marián Šťastný also played in the NHL, and his brother Paul Stastny plays for the Colorado Avalanche.Yan attended high school at Chaminade College Preparatory School.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Born in Quebec City but growing up mostly in St. Louis, Missouri, Yan Stastny was drafted in the 8th round (259th overall) in the 2002 NHL entry draft. He played for Team USA in the 2005 IIHF World Championships, making the Stastnys the first hockey family known to have represented four different countries in international play (his father having played for Czechoslovakia, Canada in the 1984 Canada Cup as a naturalized citizen, and Slovakia after the Velvet Revolution and Dissolution of Czechoslovakia).

After playing 51 games of the 2005–06 season with the American Hockey League (AHL)'s Iowa Stars, Yan made his NHL debut on March 1, 2006 with the Edmonton Oilers against the St. Louis Blues, the last team for which his father played. Eight days later, he was traded by the Oilers back to the Boston Bruins along with Marty Reasoner and a 2006 second round pick (Milan Lucic) for Sergei Samsonov as part of an NHL trade deadline deal.

On January 16, 2007, the Boston Bruins traded him to the St. Louis Blues for a 2007 fifth round draft pick.[1]

On March 3, 2010, the St. Louis Blues traded him to the Vancouver Canucks for Pierre-Cedric Labrie. He never appeared with the Canucks, instead playing with AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose to conclude the 2009–10 season.

On June 29, 2010, Stastny joined CSKA Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League.
