Possibly the best Petes player to wear the maroon and white, Steve Yzerman used the 10th overall selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft to select Petes defenseman Slater Koekkoek to the Tampa Lightning.
Koekkoek's season was cut short in 2012 when he suffered a season ending shoulder injury on November 27th in Windsor. Koekkoek recorded 5 goals and 18 points in 26 games before the injury.
