25th Overall- Dominik Bokk

Next up we have German prospect, Dominik Bokk. The 6’1″ right-handed winger has been playing for the Vaxjo Lakers of the SHL. At 17 years of age playing in the Swedish Elite League, is certainly something.

Described as a skilled puck mover, smooth hands, good offensive instincts and a good shot. NHL.com writers have Bokk as the B’s first selection.

Whilst Bokk’s numbers don’t infuse any excitement within currently (15 games, 2 points) you have to look at the future. There’s a reason he is playing in the SHL at his young age, and he’s not getting huge minutes. If drafted it would be prevalent to send him back to Sweden to continue that development against men in a top league.
