June 2022 – It is becoming clear already that the 2021 draft will have some gems. Due to Covid, some players appeared to fall significantly in the draft, and Stankoven, drafted 47th looks like he should have been a first round selection. In the more defensive league of the WHL, Stankoven managed a phenomenal 104 points and 45 goals in just 59 games (1.76 points per game). Always in movement, Stankoven is always useful on the ice, no matter which zone he is in. His size is not ideal, only 5-8 and 170 pounds, but his size should not hold him back much. Winning the Four Broncos Memorial Trophy (WHL Player of the Year) and the Brad Hornung Memorial Trophy (Most Sportsmanlike), less than one year removed from being a mid-2nd round pick, Stankoven is cementing himself as an absolute fantastic pick by the Dallas Stars. Continuing Dallas’ trend of sending prospects back to junior for a second year, it is likely Stankoven gets the chance to dominate the WHL once more, although with his development going so well, do not be surprised if he is a serious contender for a roster spot on opening night.
