Fantasy Summary

Likely a bottom-sixer if he makes it to the NHL, Coskey plays a good defensive game for someone with his junior offensive stats. He’ll need time in the minors, but could emerge as a helpful secondary contributor

June 2020 – Coskey signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Islanders at the same time as Blade Jenkins, his teammate for three years with the Saginaw Spirit of the OHL. It was the 21-year-old’s fourth junior campaign so, unlike Jenkins, he must turn pro for the next season. Mark Allan

March 2020 – Now a major-junior veteran in his fifth OHL campaign with Saginaw, Coskey’s points have steadily increased from 11 to 31 to 50 to 63 and 80 so far in 62 outings as an over-ager. Goal totals, which rival his assists, have climbed from four to 10 to 27 to 31 and 34. He appeared in just 52 games in 2018-19, posting 31 scores and 32 helpers before an injury kept him out until the second playoff round. His shortened post-season resulted in three goals and five assists in 13 games. Not chosen in his first shot at the NHL draft, Coskey waited until the final round a year later when the Islanders gave him a chance. Coskey has decent size, which he uses as an above-average forechecker. Not averse to physicality, he finishes checks and works hard without the puck. A decent playmaker, he can protect the puck, although being more consistent is crucial to his overall game. He showed he can be a gamer by returning to help the Spirit in the post-season with his jaw wired shut. The Islanders have yet to sign him. Mark Allan
