DRAFT HISTORY

DRAFTSITE SCOUTING REPORT

  • Spent significant time out of Barrie's line up with a wrist injury, but ranks as the top forward on my list. That's due not only to his scoring ability, but also his ability to generate looks on the attack in many ways. Despite his injury, he's still second among all CHL rookie prospects in terms of points per game. Possesses good size, a lightning quick release, and a resume that includes a 30 goal season as a 15 year old in Russia, a 29 goal, 58 point in 48 games in the USHL as a 17 yr old, and 36 points in 21 games with Barrie this season.

    Strong, disciplined and high hockey sense, he doesn’t just want to be a one zone player; he will be active in the middle and defensive zone with the hopes he can break things open to go back the other way. He's already a big man with high end skill, strong hockey sense, and the feet to beat opponents one on one. He gets loose from coverage with regularity. He exmploys a power game in junior and projects to be a power wing as he progresses, very similar to former first rounder, Jacub Voracek. He makes his linemates better, and projects as one of the top three wingers in the draft class.

In fact, physicality and grit are merely one aspect of Svechnikov’s game and a major reason why he is so successful on the ice. A strong skater of great size, Svechnikov’s play revolves largely around his speed and ability to protect the puck. More than willing to drive hard to the net and able to maneuver in close to the goal, Svechnikov has breakaway speed and the puck skills necessary to find the net. Further, with his long strides and strong legs, Svechnikov can easily fend off opposing defenders throughout his drive to the goal. With one successful USHL season under his belt, Svechnikov will look to further develop his overall game en route to the 2018 NHL Draft. Although he is a terrific playmaker as well as a goal scorer, Svechnikov’s play within his own end as well as without the puck needs improvement, however, it goes without saying that the young Russian is a phenomenal talent with massive upside.
