At this point, he's DEFINITELY a candidate for the top 60. Really heady offensive winger. Very good skater. Good with the puck. See's the ice well. Can score and pass. Just a solid overall offensive player. He's a bit of a pest too and will crash the net for rebounds. Defensively, he's improving.

I think he and Jarrod Maidens profile as very similar players, and people talk about Maidens as a potential first round pick...so I don't see any reason why Kosmachuk shouldn't be receiving that consideration too.

I really like Kosmachuk for some reason, even though I have never seen him play.

Brock sums him up very well. I see him as a 3rd line NHLer with some scoring ability. I watched him in Minor Midget and ill be honest I didnt see high end NHL potential, but hes proving me wrong this year, hes really progressed well in Guelph.

A teammate of The Dorsal Finn and Marcantuoni with the Marlies. Plays a very high energy game and is relentless on the forecheck. Would make a good 3rd liner in the NHL.

bump. would like to hear how he has been.

a comparable? seems like he is not chippy enough to be a pest, but brings some nice offensive skills in his package.

maybe like a gritty brad boyes or something?

I saw Kosmachuk a fair bit this year and in a lot of ways that's who he reminded me of as a 17 year-old.

Stat lines for their draft year, both with Guelph:

Callahan - 5'11, 180 lbs. 68 points, 86 PIM
Kosmachuk - 6'0, 177 lbs, 59 poitns, 110 PIM

Cally drafted 4th round to NYR. Kos, a likely 2nd rounder. If he continues that progression, he'll be a steal.

Yeah I agree. Will be interesting to see where his goal scoring goes, as Guelph is not that offensively inclined. He might be able to hit 40 if Guelph improves as a team next year, which i do expect (improvement not 40g).

He was one guy I was very impressed with at the CHL top prospects game, never heard of him going into the game, but he was a guy I watched through the whole thing. Never gave up on the puck and seemed to have incredible chemistry with Faksa during the 3 on 3 at the skills comp.

Bump, would like to hear about progress on Kosmachuk? He ended last year with second most goals in OHL only behind Yak

You do know that stat was only based on draft eligible players, right?

By all accounts, he seems to have picked up where he left off. He leads the team with 12 goals and 23 points through the first 18 games.

JETS management is very pleased with this selection.

I really like his progression over the past year. Has added a scrappiness to his game that makes him much more effective. I see him as a Steve Downie type player

That would be nice. Kos, Lowry, Trouba, Sutter, and Olsen could bring a lot of sandpaper to the Jets lineup one day.

Still surprised he ended up going where he did.

I would have been perfectly content if the Oilers had of taken him at #32.

Love his game.
