He was drafted in the first round, 19th overall, by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. Whilst in the Coyotes system, Koreis played with American Hockey League affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage, before leaving North America at the end of his entry level contract with the Coyotes unable to debut in the National Hockey League.
