From Canadiens.com:

In Round 5, Timmins added even more depth to the back end of the depth chart, calling on 6-foot-2 Western Canadian rearguard Nikolas Koberstein from the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Olds Grizzlys. Another frequent penalty box guest, the Barrhead, AB native racked up 153 PIMs in 55 games with the Grizzlys in 2013-14. Ranked 205th by Central Scouting at the end of the season, the big blue-liner was an off-the-board pick for Timmins and his staff at No. 125 overall.

“Koberstein was a guy we went under the radar with. We spent some time with him after the season and I think this guy has good upside and long-range projection,” shared Timmins, adding that Koberstein will head back to Olds to serve as the team’s captain next year before attending the University of Alaska-Fairbanks in 2015-16. “He’s a good kid with tons of character, but he’s a good hockey player, too.”
