Observations

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.
