Highlights
1-time AHL Calder Cup Champion 1

A two-way defenseman with pretty good size, Kostka has a good point shot and a decent passing ability. Could stand to play a more physical, aggressive game at times.
- Erik K. Piri, EP (2012)

He doesn't look nervous. He's very good with the puck; he's incredibly smart, Dave Nonis (Toronto GM) 2013
