Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

"Not flashy, but a very solid two-way performer." - Red Line Report

Strengths: 

Smart, high-IQ two-way player who plays a complete 200 foot game. Good skater with the above average skill-set you might expect from a classic Russian forward. Can play both center and wing effectively, giving his club some versatility.

Weaknesses: 

Somewhat undersized, and needs to grow and get stronger. As a consequence, can play a little bit of a soft, perimeter game at times.

Projection: 

Versatile third line forward who can spot on the second line. Comparable is Nick Bonino.
