Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Martin Hostak
Centre Martin Hostak played parts of two seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers in the early 90s. He was blessed with natural offensive skill but was more suited to the larger ice surface in Europe.

Born in Hradec Kralove, Czechoslovakia, Hostak was selected 62nd overall by the Flyers in 1987. He played with Sparta Prague for four years and won a national championship in 1990. The talented pivot also helped his country win the silver medal at the 1987 World Junior Championship and capture the bronze at the 1990 World Championships.

Prior to the 1990-91 season, Hostak came to terms with Philly and looked solid in 50 games as a rookie. He spent most of the next year in the minors and notched 27 goals for the AHL's Hershey Bears before joining MoDo AIK of Sweden. Hostak also played for the Czech Republic at the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics and the World Championships in 1993 and 1995 before retiring in 1996.
