After being drafted 65th overall by the Baie-Comeau Drakkar, in the 4th round of the 2012 QMJHL Entry Draft, Bokondji “Boko” Imama has built the distinct reputation of being the toughest player in the QMJHL.
In the 2013-2014 season, he tallied 7 goals and 8 assists, for a total of 15 points, and racked up an astounding 101 Penalty Minutes. Boko is a power forward and his style of play consists of a combination of skill, toughness and grit. He protects his team’s star players and sticks up for his teammates, so it’s no wonder the Drakkar love having Boko on their side.
In the summer of 2014, Boko was invited to the Montreal Canadiens development camp as an undrafted free agent. He made such an impression on the Montreal Canadiens staff that they invited him to attend their rookie camp for the 2014-2015 NHL season.
On January 4th, 2015, Imama was traded from Baie-Comeau on the eve of the trade deadline, to Saint John in exchange for a 1st (2016) and 2nd round pick (2015), exemplifying his value across the league.
We are extremely proud to announce that Boko was selected 180th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft! Boko was recently sent back to his QMJHL team, St. John, where he will play out the 2015-16 season with fellow CEM prospect, Samuel Dove-McFalls.Height: 6'1"
