Dominik Bokk is the Raiders' newest import; the first German drafted since Leon Draistl five years ago.

Bokk was chosen ninth overall in the 2017 CHL Import Draft and replaces Czech Simon Stransky. The 17-year-old from Schwaig-Oberding, Germany, played for Kolner EC Under-19 team in the German junior league. Bokk scored 34 goals and 37 assists in 41 games played, making him fourth in league scoring. 

Raiders general manager Curtis Hunt said the team was excited to draft the right winger.

“He’s considered to be the top talent to come out of Germany since Leon Draisaitl. He has a sniper’s mentality that can also make plays through traffic and is extremely strong on his skates. He has the potential to be a high-end pick in next summer’s NHL Entry Draft,” Hunt said.

Bokk has played for Germany at the 2017 IIHF U18 World Championship Division I Group A tournament in April. He tallied seven goals and three assists to finish second in tournament scoring.
