March 2019 – After suffering a scary wrist injury early in the season, Kopacka is back to 100%. In his first nine games he got off to a quick start with four goals and six points, but since then has suffered from a little inconsistency. His running mate, Troy Terry, was summoned up to Anaheim which has led him to not have as many chances. His game hasn’t transitioned to the pro level, but he only has 24 AHL games under his belt so it is too early to make a clear assessment. He has the size to become a producing bottom-six NHLer if he can keep developing the physical aspect of his game as he has soft hands and a nose for the net. Lucas Main

June 2018 – Kopacka had his second straight 30-goal season in 2017-2018, scoring 31 goals and 63 points for the Soo Greyhounds. He also lit the lamp 13 times and added eight apples in the postseason, scoring a huge double overtime goal to send the Greyhounds to the OHL Championship. He uses his big frame (6-3, 203) to shield the puck in the offensive zone and plays a strong 200-foot game. Has the potential to develop into a third-line, two-way forward. Keep an eye on his development as he will join the Gulls this season and get his first taste of pro hockey. Lucas Main
