Prospect Profile: Scott Kosmachuk

Winnipeg Jets prospect Scott Kosmachuk, just wrapped up his third season in the Ontario Hockey League with the Guelph Storm. The 6-foot, 185-pound Toronto, Ontario native was selected in the third round, 70th overall, by the Winnipeg Jets at the 2012 NHL Draft.

During the 2011-12 campaign, Kosmachuk more than doubled his point production from his rookie season in the OHL, totaling 59 points (30 goals, 29 assists) in 67 games with the Storm. He tallied 21 points (six goals, 15 assists) in 68 games in his rookie year.

Kosmachuk, 18, finished the 2012-13 season with career-high 35 goals, 30 assists for 65 points in 68 regular season games. He was named the OHL player for the week ending November 25th. He led the league with six goals in three games, while adding two assists for a total of eight points and, an OHL high plus-minus rating of plus-6.

The Storm made it into the OHL playoffs but the Kitchener Rangers eliminated them in five games in the Western Conference Quarter-Final round. Kosmachuk scored one goal with 13 PIM’s in the five games.

“I don’t think my role changed too much from last season to this season,” he said. “Last season we had a really young team. I was given big responsibility and I was expected to put up big numbers and score some goals. I think they expected that much more in that role from me this season.”

In addition to his solid point production, Kosmachuk isn’t afraid to drop the gloves and get involved in the rough areas of the game when he’s called upon, which explains the 105 penalty minutes this season.

“I think it comes along with the compete level,” he explained. “You get into the game and things happen and emotions take over. It’s not anything to do with being scared or anything it’s just playing how I play, and it comes natural.”

Kosmachuk is well known for his competitiveness, his work ethic and his willingness to sacrifice his body in order to ensure team success.

“I’m aggressive and have a strong compete level and I think I also bring a lot of speed to the game,” he said. “I’m pretty versatile I think too, I’m a right wing but I’m playing on the left wing this season.”

Kosmachuk will attend the Winnipeg Jets development camp this summer for the second straight year and will attend the 2013 Training Camp next fall.
