June 2022 – Kozak finished his draft-plus-one season with 32 goals and 37 assists in 66 games with the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks. The undersized forward continues to be stronger on the defensive side of the puck than offensively but has diversified his game as a 19-year-old at the WHL level. He spent time centering the Winterhawks’ first line and finished fourth among Winterhawks skaters in scoring this season. During the 2022 WHL Playoffs, he scored two goals and three assists in 10 games. Kevin Wong
