Height 6' 1
Weight 184
Country Canada
Position Defense
Shoots Left
Amateur Team Peterborough Petes
Draft History
Drafted in 2012 NHL Draft: 1st Round, 10th Overall Pick by Tampa Bay Tampa Bay
Additional Information A taller player who has a nice size/strength ratio, and ability to jump into the rush. He is capable of adding intense snarl if appropriate, but tends to stick to the business. He is surprisingly quick for a bigger man with mobility and a very fluid stride. Displays good vision on the offensive power play. He plays a safe game within his present abilities, but can surprise defenders with his speed from the point. He is certainly a prospect with plenty of room for growth and improvement. He already shows a hard quick shot. Koekkoek is a sleeper due to the fact that he didn't receive an invitation to the RDO camp, despite the fact his performance at the Ivan Hlinka tourney was outstanding. Their step-child treatment of him may result in some team getting a huge value later than our projection.
