March 18, 2023 - ECHL (ECHL) - Idaho Steelheads News Release

BOISE, ID - The Idaho Steelheads (@Steelheads), proud ECHL (@ECHL) affiliate of the Dallas Stars (@DallasStars), and Steelheads Head Coach & Director of Hockey Operations Everett Sheen announced today that the cub has agreed to terms with defenseman Demetrios Koumontzis on a Standard Player Contract (SPC).

Koumontzis, 22, just completed his graduate season at Arizona State University where he served as an Assistant Captain tallying 18 points (7G, 11A) in 37 games. The Scottsdale, AZ native played all five of his collegiate seasons for the Sun Devils from 2018-23 accumulating 67 points (22G, 45A) in 142 career games.

Prior to college hockey, the 5-foot-11, 190lb left-handed shot was named a 2018 Minnesota Mr. Hockey Finalist after recording 41 points (20G, 21A) at Edina High School. He played two seasons for the Phoenix Jr. Coyotes 16U AAA from 2015-17.

He was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft in the fourth round, 108th overall.

Idaho will host Orlando tonight at tomorrow night at the Idaho Central Arena for a 7:10 p.m. puck drop.
