Dominik Bokk is another of those prospects that saw less ice time on a top Swedish club, and although in one tourney he looked lights out, he looked uninterested in getting involved in any sort of comeback for his German National team. Many like Corey Prohman have ranked him a top ten player in this class based on the glimpses of dominance he was able to display in less competitions.
The jury is out for me. He is in the 29th overall spot on my board but he might go earlier.
Here is my profile from DraftSite:
German winger blessed with good size, and hands. Was relegated to a smaller role and spare part on the powerful Vaxjo Lakers Champions League finalist team. At times looks like an outstanding developmental prospect who can send the opposition reeling by virtue of his going to the front and driving through traffic. Has a good hockey IQ and excellent vision, which, along with his high end passing ability, would have teams viewing him as a really nice late first round option. His soft hands thread the needle with the best of them, when dishing to his linemates by way of both his forehand and backhand with intensity. Or when he shows inspired play in traffic between the dots, moving and shooting with regularity. The issue is the consistency at which he displayed these efforts. Can look disinterested and not willing to get involved for long stretches. Teams look towards the prospects that come to play sixty minutes, even if they may have less skill than many who don’t play up to there potential. But teams also hope to change hearts and minds as maturity takes place. For me, this young German lad is a toss-up.
