Another outstanding Russian prospect who has size, skill and a strong compete to his play. Power skater with good balance and plays strong on his skates. Finishes checks, engages physically in the crease area, and makes space for himself in the corners. Has a long reach good puck control in tight spaces and battle areas. Good hands and passes the puck well besides showing scoring ability in the areas from the circle down into the high traffic areas. A lot to like, if he is actually crossing the pond.
