History

2008-09: Peter Stoykewych played for Winnepeg South Blues in the MJHL along with older brother Adam, a Michigan Tech recruit. Scored 4 goals with 12 assists in 53 games with 33 PIM.

2009-10: Break out season as he was one of the top puck moving defenseman in the MJHL for Winnepeg South – scoring 6 goals with 25 assists and 63 PIM in 56 games. Played for Team West in the World Junior A challenge and was also selected for the CJHL Prospects Games. Committed to Colorado College for the 2011-12 season.

2010-11: In preparation for his commitment to Colorado College, Stoykewych spent the season in the USHL with the Des Moines Buccaneers. Through 58 games the big blueliner took a regular shift on the second pairing and played a consistent game on a poor team. His 5 goals and 10 assists were modest numbers compared to his MJHL days, but Stoykewych does have the ability to produce more often for the Tigers. His smooth skating style should serve him well on the big ice surface and the Colorado College program is on the rise.

2011-12: Stoykewych worked his way into the lineup for Colorado College as a freshman; skating in 26 of 36 games for the Tigers. Playing alongside junior Mike Boivin on the Tigers’ third pairing, he had 3 assists and was an even plus-minus with 14 penalty minutes. Colorado College finished fifth in the WCHA but was upset by Michigan Tech in the first round of the league tournament; finishing the year 18-16-2.

2012-13: Stoykewych played in all 42 games for Colorado College in his sophomore season. Playiing on the Tigers’ top defense pairing with senior Mike Boivin, he scored 2 goals with 9 assists and was +1 with 20 penalty minutes. After finishing eighth in the WCHA, Colorado College came within one game of earning a berth in the NCAA tournament; defeating Denver, North Dakota and Minnesota before falling to Wisconsin in the Broadmoor Trophy (WCHA) championship game.

 

Talent Analysis

A puck moving defenseman, Stoykewych's game is predicated on moving the puck quickly and making the players around him better. His skating speed is a key to his game while he also has a strong shot that is tough on goalies. He's a bit raw in terms of his defensive game, and sometimes caught out of position. He should improve in those areas as he gains experience. Stoykewych has ample time to improve his positional play as well as continue to grow physically stronger and develop his technical skills.

 

Future

Stoykewych is attending Colorado College.  His smooth skating style should serve him well on the big ice surface and the Colorado College program is on the rise. His size and mobility make him an exciting project for a seventh rounder.
