Additional Information QMJHL transplant who look exceptional on the Russian Team in the Subway Series in November. Creative player who is scoring with regularity, he has entrenched himself into the Entry draft's third tier of prospects. Projects as a wide body who has strong scoring ability. Plays with grit and strong on the puck, and stranger is no to the corners.Was named the CHL rookie of the year. He has decent hands and he clicked and produced with his Drakkar linemates after a very ordinary career in Russia, might point to him being a better North American style player. The very fact he came over to adjust to the smaller North American rinks has NHL teams viewing him as a player who wants to be a future NHLer and not return to Russian before he has.
