Scott Kosmachuk's Player Profile

A graduate of the Toronto Marlboros Minor Midgets, Scott Kosmachuk was chosen 29th overall by the Guelph Storm in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection, the same draft in which they chose his minor midget teammate Matt Finn. He played in a complete 68-game schedule as a rookie, usually on a line with veteran Francis Menard and fellow rookie Brock McGinn. That season, the Storm were going to lose some of their better offensive stars to graduation; players such as Taylor Beck, Michael Latta, Peter Holland and Tyler Carroll were in the twilight of their OHL tenures. Playing on a line with veteran Francis Menard and fellow rookie Brock McGinn, Kosmachuk scored 21 points, six goals and 15 assists, in his first major junior campaign. He also had 25 penalty minutes, showing truculent play despite his 5'11", 185-pound frame. He also scored a goal in the playoffs for the Storm. Upon the graduation of their top players, Kosmachuk became a key fixture on the offense for the Storm, serving as a teacher to rookies Hunter Garlent and Tyler Bertuzzi. Playing again with Menard and McGinn, and then with Cody McNaughton, and he found that the graduation of veteran players upped his ice time and his confidence. In 67 games, Kosmachuk scored 59 points, third in team scoring behind only Menard and Zack Mitchell. Kosmachuk also scored 30 goals, second most on the team, leading the Storm with 11 powerplay markers. In fact, the renewed confidence was evident immediately as he scored a hat trick in the first game of the season. Not only did Kosmachuk finish third in team scoring, he also was third in penalty minutes, trailing Andrey Pedan and Bertuzzi, with 110 on the season, nearly five times as many as he had as a rookie. He will be representing Canada at the World Under-18s in April in the Czech Republic. His smooth skating, his quick release and his apparent ability to stand up for his teammates -- and himself -- make him a complete player who will make a solid professional prospect.
