Namestnikov, Vladislav

North American Juniors Game Night: 9-23-11

QMJHL

Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 6

D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-2-2, +1, 5 PIM (fighting vs. Xavier Ouellet), 2 SOG, 0 Hit
Last Season’s Totals: 60 GP, 7-25-32, +17, 37 PIM
Playoff Totals: 24 GP, 5-4-9, -3, 12 PIM

Janosik made his 2011-2012 debut for the Olympiques, notching a multi-point night and a fight. Janosik has done well statistically for his native Slovakia in World Junior play, but his stats so far in league play have been mediocre. A breakout year is expected. The Armada is a new franchise in the Q this year. Last year they were the Montreal Junior and before that the St. John’s Fog Devils.

OHL

Saginaw Spirit 0 @ London Knights 8

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (hooking)
Last Season’s Totals: 68 GP, 30-38-68, +12, 49 PIM
2011 Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 1-4-5, 6 PIM

London put a snowman on the scoreboard to start their season, scoring five times in the second period and adding three more in the third. Namestnikov, who was sent back to juniors by the Lightning this week, had one assist in the game, but was one of only three players to fail to finish above even in plus/minus. He was hauled down from behind on a shorthanded breakaway, but no penalty was called. London was paced by Tie Domi’s son, Max, who had a hat trick and an assist in his first OHL game. London first rounder Bo Horvat had a goal and an assist, and Seth Griffith, who participated in the Lightning’s prospect camp early in the summer and again for the Bolts in the Coral Springs prospect tournament, had two goals and was named Third Star. London plays at Guelph Sunday.

Owen Sound Attack 6 @ Guelph Storm 4

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, +3, 2 PIM

Defending champion Owen Sound is off to a 2-0 start to the year after beating the Storm in Guelph Friday night 6-4. Schemitsch is scoreless through two games.

Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

"Small and skilled but too reckless for his own good."
-Red Line Report

Strengths: 

Namestnikov is a hard working, gritty player who fearlessly takes the puck to the net and also loves to chirp and instigate his opponents. Creative with the puck and is a good playmaker with great ability to make tips and deflections and a dangerous backhand. He's also honest and responsible defensively.

Weaknesses: 

Namestnikov is small in stature and needs to gain upper body strength. Can be aggressive to the point of recklessness and has a tendency to put himself in a position to get cleaned out by big hits. He's a good skater, but doesn't have explosive burst, and although you can take the kid out of Russia, you can't take Russia out of the kid: he does have a tendency to freelance with the puck at times and not involve his linemates.

Projection: 

2nd/3rd Line Center
