Koekkoek was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Tuesday, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports. Koekkoek has a mere four helpers in 29 NHL games this season, though he's proven to be an adequate shutdown man with 25 hits and 27 blocked shots, despite averaging just under 13 minutes per game. He could be subjected to another call-up if Braydon Coburn (upper body) misses Thursday's game against Buffalo.
Koekkoek was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Monday, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports. Koekkoek has played 17 games at the top level this season and has provided a bit of offense from the blueline with four assists. With eight defensemen currently on the roster, it's unlikely the youngster will play enough to have an impact in fantasy leagues.
Koekkoek was reassignedto AHL Syracuse on Friday. The Bolts have seven defensemen on the active roster and there was no apparent need for an eighth, so Koekkoek returns to the minors where he'll presumably pick up consistent playing time. He's added four assists in 17 games at the NHL level this season, but the ice time is paltry at an average of 13:19.
Koekkoek played 13:20 and picked up an assist in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Bruins. He now has three assists in two games since his recall. Koekkoek has good offensive upside, but has been hampered by injury through his junior and early pro development. Keep an eye on him if his ice time starts to climb.
Koekkoek was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Monday. Koekkoek has been up and down between the Crunch and Lightning once already this year, but he's yet to make his season debut with the big club. In 12 NHL contests, Koekkoek has a single assist in addition to his modest 43 points in 137 AHL games, so there likely won't be much to see here fantasy-wise.
