Flames draft Demetrios Koumontzis with 108th pick

The Flames made their second pick of the 2018 draft this morning, selecting left-shot forward Demetrios Koumontzis, who has committed to Arizona State for next season.

Koumontzis, listed at 5’10, 183lbs, played at Edina High School last season in Minnesota last year, scoring 41 points in 24 games. It does seem as though the Flames may have taken Koumontzis above his ranking, as ISS had him ranked 175th, 275th by Future Considerations, 198th by Hockeyprospect.com, and 136th among North American skaters.

Here’s what Chris Peters and Ryan Kennedy had to say about Koumontzis:
