Scouting Report
Came up through the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl system in Russia. Is a solid puck-moving defenseman who does not mind physical contact (largely due to his strong lower base). Does not put up big offensive totals but he is reliable in his own end and a sound defender. Lacks optimum height for the National Hockey League game. Needs to make adjustments in North America in order to maximize playing time at the highest level.
Long Range Potential: Solid depth defenseman with a little upside.
