[*]Bronze Medalist at 2011 U18 World Junior Championships
[*]Selected by Tri-City of the WHL in the 2010 CHL Import Draft
Two-way defenseman who makes a good first pass out of the zone and has shown flashes of puck rushing ability. Has a good shot from the point and plays with more edge than the typical European player. Hard worker and has been a leader for Chelyabinsk's junior side, captaining his team to success in the MHL playoffs.
Not as quick as you'd like a smallish defenseman to be. Needs to bulk up to compete at the next level. Hockey sense is so-so at both ends of the rink.
Two-Way Depth Defenseman
