2012-13: Berkovitz committed to playing college hockey at Wisconsin in 2014-15 in October and played for the Team Wisconsin U16 team; playing high school hockey with Ashwaubenon as a junior. He scored 11 goals with 14 assists and 14 penalty minutes in 23 high school games. Berkovitz had 3 assists in five games as Team Wisconsin won the North American Prospects Hockey League tournament; defeating Team Minnesota in the championship game. Berkovitz was selected by the Chicago Steel in the fourth round (46th overall) of the 2013 USHL Entry Draft.
2013-14: Berkovitz was the second-leading scorer for Ashwaubenon in his senior season as the Jaguars reached the Section 5 championship game. In 27 games he scored 11 goals with 30 assists and 12 penalty minutes. Ashwaubenon lost to Notre Dame in the Section 5 final. Berkovitz was ranked 61st amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Anaheim in the fifth round (123rd overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.
2014-15: Berkovitz began the year with the USHL’s Sioux City Musketeers — contracting mononucleosis and then seeing limited time in 20 games before being traded to the Green Bay Gamblers. In 43 games between the two teams he was -4 with 4 assists and 18 penalty minutes.
Berkovitz has the prototypical frame for an NHL defenseman and is a very good skater. Having played at a relatively low level of competition in Wisconsin high school hockey, his game is early in its development stage but his hockey IQ is a strength. A long-term project, he will need to add strength and muscle to one day compete at the professional level. Currently playing in the USHL he is committed to the University of Wisconsin and should continue to develop in the physical, technical and tactical aspects of the game.
Berkovitz, originally scheduled to play college hockey this year, is back with the USHL's Green Bay Gamblers in 2015-16 after deferring his commitment to the University of Wisconsin to 2016-17. Skating in the USHL as a 19-year-old, he has played a much more prominent role for the Gamblers this season and should be more prepared to play college hockey next season. Coming from a non-traditional high school background, Berkovitz is still developing as a prospect but his physical tools and hockey intellect suggest some professional potential. More will be known about that potential when he begins his college career.
