Koukis, 16, is currently second on the team in scoring with six points (3 goals, 3 assists) in eight games played to date in the NAPHL.  The native of Brentwood, California, is currently riding a three-game goal scoring streak, which came during the NAPHL event in San Jose, California, during late October.  The Wild put together a 3-1-0 record at the event and currently sit in a tie for 4th place in the NAPHL’s 16U White Division with a 4-2-2 record.
