Lukáš Kašpar (born 23 September 1985) is a Czech professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing with HC Dynamo Moscow of the Russian Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He was originally drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the first round (22nd overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career

Kašpar was the 22nd overall pick of the Sharks in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He came to North America in 2004 to play for the Ottawa 67's of the Ontario Hockey League, tallying 21 goals and 30 assists, making it to the Memorial Cup in his first and only year in Canadian Junior Hockey.

After signing a three-year entry-level contract with the Sharks, Kašpar scored his first goal in the National Hockey League on 12 October 2008 against Jason LaBarbera of the Los Angeles Kings in a 1–0 victory. Kašpar's second National Hockey League goal was again against the Kings on 19 February 2009 against goaltender Erik Ersberg.

On 21 July 2009, he signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Philadelphia Flyers for an undisclosed amount. He was assigned to the AHL affiliate Adirondack Phantoms before he opted to terminate his contract after 8 games and return to Europe on 4 November 2009, having signed a season-long deal with Kärpät in the Finnish SM-liiga.

After two seasons with HC Donbass, and with the club suspending operations due to civil unrest, Kaspar opted to join HC Ugra on a one-year deal on 10 July 2014.[1]
