Two-way center, who likely slots in as a middle-six, secondary scorer.

July 2023 – Geekie was not qualified by the Kraken and became a UFA as a result. He then signed a two-year $4M deal with the Boston Bruins as the team clearly views him as a top nine player. Pat Quinn
June 2023 – As a pending RFA, Geekie set a career-high point pace (33) but also saw his deployment shift dramatically. His ice time fell to just over ten minutes a game, and he went from getting about a third of the powerplay time and sparse PK usage the last few seasons to nearly zero powerplay time and 16% of the penalty kill. Geekie’s underlying numbers (shooting percentage, PDO etc.) were the highest they’ve been in his time with the Kraken, so he hasn’t given us enough to be terribly bullish on an offensive jolt going forward. He will likely be a more valuable player for the Kraken than our fantasy teams. Alex Wyatt
October 2021 – Geekie has been playing with Calle Jarnkrok and Mason Appleton as pre-season winds down, and has put up two points in four games. Likely to see middle six usage, and second power play time, Geekie is unlikely to win you any championships this year, but he has a scoring pedigree, and if he can string together some hot streak, will have every chance to earn deployment- as will anyone- on the leagues’ newest franchise.

March 2019 – Geekie has been a dominant presence down the stretch towards the AHL playoffs, with 17 points in his last 18 games. The WHL product is second on the Checkers to only uber-prospect Martin Necas in terms of rookie scoring with 46 points in 71 games. Keep an eye on Geekie next season in Charlotte when he takes on more responsibility. He’s a prospect who’s full body of work may make him ready for his debut sooner rather than later. Kevin LeBlanc
After a dominant two-year run for the WHL’s Tri-City Americans, Geekie has moved on to professional hockey and the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers this season. He has kept up the solid play for the Checkers, scoring 13 times and adding nine assists for the best team in the AHL. The pivot’s 13 goals are good for sixth among AHL rookies.
As a coveted right handed center, Geekie projects as a bottom-nine forward in terms of an NHL future. He plays a solid two-way game with a knack for finishing in high danger areas. Carolina’s recent trade of Victor Rask bumps all the centers on the organizational depth chart up a spot, but Geekie is still a couple seasons out from seeing significant NHL action.
