The Patrik Koyš Hype Thread

I do realize that this is super extra early, but this kid has had a great start to the season with MHK Dubnica´s U18 team to the Extraliga U18 season (8 points in 8 games) despiting still being only 13 (born 24.10.1995) and as an addition has even been named the captain for Dubnica U18 recently. So I thought it might be nice to have a thread on him and I tried to collect all the info available.

2006/2007 SVK U15 29GP 28G 32A 60PTS +67 16PIM
2007/2008 SVK U15 not available *
SVK U14 23GP 34G 29A 63PTS +55 4PIM
2008/2009 SVK-1 U18 8GP 5G 7A 12PTS +16 2PIM
SVK U15 39GP 56G 66A 122PTS +129
2009/2010 SVK U18 Extraliga 8GP 5G 3A 8PTS +4 0PIM

He´s also been mentioned in an interview with Dubnica´s U18 coach Robert Halaber at
The scoring leader of the U15 league was Patrik Koyš (1995,36GP,56G+66A=122PTS), the youngest between the top 50 players.
"Patrik is an intelligent, and really very talented young player with great skating abilities, his play is a play with an idea. From my POV he´s an another Tatar."

What is awaiting him, so that this words would come true?
"The most important thing is for him to realize that it won´t work without hard work. He has to realize that there is huge potencial, huge talent in him and if he´ll be healthy, I´m convinced that he´ll be a great hockey player one day.

The most important thing is to give a chance to such boys.
"I brought him to the U18 team from the 7th grade (U13), this change was unique in this age category. The jump to the U18 league is the hardest jump in the life of a hockey player. Often there are still frail boys who get into a category with guys a lot older and more physically disposed players."

And what place did you give him in the team?
" It makes no sense to bring such a player into the U18 league and to give him 3rd-4th line duties. He played on the first line, because I´m convinced that a good-class player even though younger has to play with the best that can help him the most."
Patrik has also represented Central Slovakia at various tournaments, for example the U13 tourney in FLIMS in autumn 2007 and at the Grischun Cup in Zilina in April 2008 where he recorded 16 points for 11 goals and 5 assists in 6 games. At the 95 World Selects Invitational where a Team Slovakia West played, he played for a Canadian team ESC Quebec and he recorded 9 PTS (5G,4A) in 7 games.

As I already said, I do realize it´s super early, but Koys has a chance to become the next top player to come out of

*I can´t seem to open the site with those stats at the szlh website.
