March 2022 – Coskey is having a similar season to that of fellow prospect Reece Newkirk. After posting only four assists in 23 AHL appearances with Bridgeport, Coskey has prospered in the ECHL, totaling nine goals and 20 assists in 26 games with the Worcester Railers. Unlike Newkirk, Coskey lacks an NHL contract. Mark Allan

August 2021 – The 22-year-old signed a one-year contract with the Bridgeport Islanders. He registered two goals and three assists in 16 AHL outings last season, respectable totals for a player making the daunting leap from junior to North America’s second-best pro hockey league. Mark Allan

April 2021 – Coskey’s pro debut is off to a slow start with just two scores in 10 AHL appearances. The good news? He’s registered only eight shots on goal for Bridgeport, so his shooting percentage is a robust 25 per cent. Mark Allan

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
