Scout Quotes

Bokk has outstanding stickhandling ability. He has incredible hands and can make plays in a phone booth. He pairs this with very good vision and passing skill. Bokk has high-end hockey IQ, he always seems to make smart plays with the puck and knows how to get open without it. Bokk is strong on his skates, and protects the puck well in the cycle game. He has decent balance. This should improve even more as he continues to add muscle to his frame.

Bokk is a goal scorer. He has a good arsenal of shots. His wrist shot and snapshot are hard and accurate. They both also feature a quick release. Bokk’s slap shot and one-timer are also strong. While his shots are good Bokk can also score in tight. He goes to the net and can score with tip-ins, pounce on rebounds, and with the quick hands to bang in passes from teammates.

Bokk is a talented, but raw player. He needs to continue to work on his game and get good coaching and development. He needs to work on his defensive game, and also to be a bit more physical without the puck. Bokk may be anywhere from two to four years away from being NHL ready, but with good development can be a top-six forward. – Last Word on Hockey

AJ’s Thoughts

Like Denisenko, Bokk is world class in his talent with the puck. Harry Potter would be jealous of the things Bokk does with a hockey stick, his version of a wand. It’s that skill level and creativity that makes him such an intriguing prospect. Some have him in the borderline top-10 because he’s such a talented player. That’s the easy part.

He doesn’t try hard defensively and he’s not committed to getting the puck away from the opposing team. He has serious maturity issues and he doesn’t seem to enjoy anything about the physical aspects of the game. That’s not a guy I really want to invest a high draft pick in.


Avalanche Fit

Do not want. If somehow Bokk made it to 47, sure, take the chance on that talent. At 16? No, thank you. Naturally, this is what will happen.
