2008-09: In his WHL rookie season, Austin Madaisky, a first round pick of the Calgary Hitmen at the 2007 WHL Bantam Draft, played in 48 games for the Hitmen. He scored 2 goals and added 7 assists for 9 points. Madaisky registered no points in 2 playoff games for the Hitmen.
2009-10: Madaisky began the season with the Calgary Hitmen, playing in 39 games for that team. He scored 5 goals and added 13 assists for 18 points. Madaisky was traded to the Kamloops Blazers, appearing in 26 games for the Blazers. He scored 2 goals and added 7 assists for 9 points, giving his a total of 7 goals and 22 assists for 27 points on the season. In 4 playoff games for the Blazers, Madaisky scored 3 goals and added 3 assists for 6 points. He played for Team Cherry at the 2010 CHL Top Prospects Game.
2010-11: Madaisky was the second-leading scorer among defensemen for Kamloops in his first full season with the club despite missing nineteen games after suffering a season-ending neck injury in February. In his third WHL season he skated in 55 games and scored 7 goals with 20 assists. Madaisky had the third-most penalty minutes on the Blazers (104) and was a -15 plus/minus on a Kamloops team that finished last in its division and won just 29 games.
2011-12: In his final year in the WHL he was the assistant captain of the Kamploops Blazers, for the second straight season, and recorded career highs in both goals (13) and assists (37). He had seven points in 9 playoff games.
Madaisky has always been known for his strong defensive instincts, but last season he showed he can move the puck well, too. After nearly doubling his point totals, he is becoming confident with the puck and the results were clear.
Madaisky will play his first game of professional hockey in Springfield this beginning fall. It will be interesting if his new found confidence in Kamloops will transfer into his game with the Falcons. If it does, Madaisky could find his way to the NHL as soon as 2014.
