For all those guys saying Koekoek is only a river boat gambler, I just saw his draft video and Bob MacKenzie said he was used on the shut down pairing when he played for Canada at the Ivan Hlinka tournament. He has to be more than just an offensive defenseman to be taken that highly by Steve Yzerman. They aren't going to rush him either.
Agree, i think there is a small small chance that he could even be back as an overager but i highly doubt that, TBL wont rush him as there using the Detroit way for there prospects.
